I have performed across the United States including notable performances at The University of Cincinnati, The University of Central Florida, Stetson University, Texas Tech University, and many others. I have also performed in Gap, France at the Université Européenne de Saxophone. I am currently Adjunct Instructor of Saxophone at Bethune-Cookman University in Daytona Beach, FL, and a Course Director at Full Sail University in Winter Park, FL. 

I am also an accomplished recording engineer with thousands of hours of experience. I have recorded live performances of Emanuel Ax, Wynton Marsalis, Tiempo Libre, the Lansing Symphony Orchestra, as well as Van Cliburn Gold Medal Winners Stanislav Ioudenitch and Ralph Votapek. My recordings were featured on WKAR, WIBC, and the Big Ten Network. In 2010 I produced a CD of student recordings called Drastic Measures.

Student Feedback

Dr. Rosenberg was awesome. I really like his videos and the content of our class. He has a great sense of humor. He would add a tiny line of humor to the video that made it exciting and something to look forward to. He is a great teacher.

Dr. Rosenberg has exceptional musical skills and has first-hand knowledge of the information he shares with the class. He also encourages us to think outside of the box, which enables us to look at our subject matters from several different viewpoints. This creates meaningful discussions between Dr. Rosenberg and my classmates.

Dr. Rosenberg is brilliant. He holds students to high standards from day one. He is easy to get along with. His personality really comes out in the videos he uses and viewing them makes you appreciate him even more as a professor.

The greatest resource in the class was the instructor. He took time to answer all of my questions.
