DANIEL ROSMAN , graduate teaching assistant in clarinet performance, Northwestern University, IL; Clarinetist, The United States Army Field Band, Washington, DC
Daniel Rosman will be serving as an instructor at the Marching Band Leadership and Color Guard Camp this summer for the 7th time. Currently a graduate teaching assistant at Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music, Mr. Rosman will receive a Master of Music degree in clarinet performance in June of 2022. He holds dual bachelor’s degrees from Florida State University, one in music education and one in clarinet performance. Mr. Rosman recently auditioned for and accepted a position in the clarinet section of The United States Army Field Band in Washington, DC, one of the Army’s three premier bands. He will begin working in this position in the Fall of 2022.
While at Northwestern, Mr. Rosman was a recipient of the Eckstein Scholarship and the Bentley T. Handwork Scholarship. He played as principal clarinet in the NU Symphony Orchestra and the renowned Symphonic Wind Ensemble under the direction of Dr. Mallory Thompson, and his graduate teaching responsibilities included working with the first-year clarinet students at the Bienen School. At FSU, Mr. Rosman proudly represented the College of Music as Head Drum Major of the Marching Chiefs, where he led the band through the 2013 College Football National Championship and the 2014 Rose Parade. He was a recipient of the Manley Whitcomb Scholarship, the Garnet & Gold Key Society’s Spirit Award, he was an active member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, CNAfME, and he was also a member of the presidential search advisory committee for the university’s 15th president, a responsibility that only 3 students were selected for out of the university’s population of 40,000.
Prior to his studies at Northwestern, Mr. Rosman was a high school band director in Florida. While teaching, he presented clinics and master classes throughout the state, including a clinic at the FMEA conference (with his good friend Dr. Daniel Farr) on clarinet pedagogy for non-clarinetist band directors. He was published in the Florida Music Director’s Journal on a similar topic.
Mr. Rosman has studied clarinet extensively with Paul Votapek, Deborah Bish, Mark Nuccio, and Steve Cohen. When he’s not performing, practicing, or teaching, Mr. Rosman enjoys cooking, eating spicy food, exercising, and reading ridiculous fan theories about what is coming next in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He is especially proud of his former students, and he is excited to contribute to the MBLC once more this summer, before all his hair is shaved off and he goes through Army Basic Combat Training.
