“Elizabeth Rosinbum presented a fabulous lecture on entrepreneurship, leadership, and private studio organization at the University of Oklahoma during the spring 2019 semester. Her presentation was highly engaging, relevant, and I personally found her to be wonderfully relatable while sharing excellent “real-world” advice and experiences. My students responded extremely favorably, evidenced by the numerous positive conversations that they shared with me after the event. Elizabeth also spent extra time mentoring OU graduate students during her visit with the studio. Without a doubt, Elizabeth’s residency positively impacted my students and the content that she presented will help guide their professional decision making after they graduate.”

“The tangible benefits from Ms. Rosinbum's lecture (on performance anxiety) to my studio were immeasurable. Students continue to keep in mind insights gained during the talk, and I have unapologetically adapted several key ideas into my own teaching. Her style is engaging, her content is clear and fresh, and her demeanor made it clear that she is primarily interested in providing a real, actual benefit to studying musicians.”

“Over the years, I have had the privilege to hear Elizabeth speak many times over a variety of topics and every time I leave changed. Her knowledge, passion, and genuine spirit creates an open environment that challenges and inspires growth. She can engage with any audience because of her direct, yet incredibly vulnerable delivery. Elizabeth truly cares about helping others find their place in the world and I believe there’s no one better suited in guiding them there than her.

Elizabeth focuses not only on helping the students to learn to play the saxophone, but also on many other important life lessons, like how to control nervousness, how to hold your head high during disappointments, and how to stick with something even when it’s not easy. She is patient, kind, and has made the middle school band experience truly enjoyable for our daughter.

Elizabeth Rosinbum’s private lessons have provided my son with the opportunity to progress quicker and have more fun with the saxophone. Supplementing his school lessons, her warmth and expert teaching skills has been a game changer in his attitude and skills. The results speak for themselves – my son got all ones on his solo presentation, along with glowing feedback. His positive attitude and skills also earned him “Outstanding Woodwind 8th Grade Musician” of the 8th grade saxophonists.

You have been such a great influence on Aidan and I wanted to thank you for all your hard work. You really pushed him to excel when he didn't want to do the extra work. You have shown him that he is capable of doing more with the saxophone than he realizes. You have also instilled a love for music and the saxophone that has been such a pleasure to observe as a parent.

My son started out in 6th grade band a complete novice, and did not get private lessons for the first few months of school. But as soon as we enrolled him in private lessons with Ms. Rosinbum, his skills took off like a rocket! He went from 9th chair out of 11 saxophones to 3rd chair at the end of the school year. We couldn’t be happier and our son LOVED working with her! Ms. Rosinbum loves the saxophone and she relayed that love of the instrument to our son, which is priceless!

Elizabeth brought a great passion for music, the saxophone, and teaching. She has a great attitude and a great sense of humor that helped him really enjoy the work. She cared about his progress, and helped him to continue enjoy playing at a time when he was facing more things in school and other places that competed for his attention. He improved a lot with her guidance, and we felt very fortunate to have found Elizabeth to teach our son.

Elizabeth taught my high school-aged son David for two years, and guided him from an uncertain and unsure sax player into an enthusiastic and considerably more serious one. She clearly and supportively set very high goals and standards and worked diligently on helping him prepare for auditions and concerts. Her enthusiasm for the instrument and music is infectious.

My son Sam has really enjoyed working with you, and has commented that he has learned more with you than any other tutor.

Elizabeth is a terrific teacher. Just one year ago, my son didn't know how to play a single note on the saxophone. He has learned so much and grown in his love of playing, in large part due to her instruction. I'm so glad we found Elizabeth and that she is willing to share her time and talent with her students!

We love having Mrs. Rosinbum work with our students. She really works to address the fundamental aspects of their playing which makes future learning more efficient; and she accomplishes this in a warm way but with high expectations. The kids know they have to work but are glad to.

Thanks so much for working your magic (expertise) on my student's solo...it sounded so much better and in tune!!! I see major improvement in my Alto Sax section that stays consistent throughout the year.

Mrs. Rosinbum is very patient and helps me in the areas that I struggle with. She is kind and dedicated - I am a better saxophonist because of her.

Thanks to Elizabeth I am well on my way to mastering the saxophone, she has helped me better understand the intricacies of producing a pleasing sound on the instrument. She has helped me along every step of the way. I look forward to my lessons every week.
