Dr. Jacob Roseman is celebrating his 19th year with Wausau Conservatory as the teaching and performing artist in flute. His extensive background in music has taken him to Pennsylvania, Florida, Alabama and Wisconsin both as a premier flautist and an instructor. You can learn more about his professional background on the Wausau Conservatory website.
Dr. Roseman’s passion is music – even from a very young age. “I have really never done anything else in the working world – all I wanted to do was play music. I could not think of anything else to do.” It is still all he thinks about and loves on a daily basis.
This passion follows into his personal music collections. He enjoys classical music, especially Baroque and Romantic styles. But, he admits that he also has a side collection of movie soundtracks and classic pop from the 60’s 70’s and 80’s. Current artists of influence include Jean-Pierre Rampal and Julius Baker in flute, but also vocalist Kathleen Battle and violinist Jascha Heifitz.
It’s almost difficult for Dr. Roseman to think about anything but music. He looks forward to that “wow” moment when a student taps into a piece of music and captures its true essence, its heart. He shares his passion for music with everyone he works with and teaches, encouraging them to catch the “bug” along with him.
Dr. Roseman does admit to one other appetite in his life. “I love to make desserts, especially baking. If not for music, I would be a pastry chef!”
When asked – if you could rule the world for one day, what would you do? He smiled patiently and said, “I would make sure everyone had the means to make their dreams come true – in music and in life.”
