Mr. Richard Rose is excited to be the full-time Band/Music Appreciation teacher at Our Lady of Lourdes High School. Having previously taught in the Greenville and Newburgh City School Districts, this marks his 9th year in education.
Mr. Rose attended John Jay High School and holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Ithaca College and a Master’s Degree in Music Education from Western Connecticut State University.
While playing, performing, and teaching music is his main hobby, he also enjoys going on leisurely bike rides, Marvel Movies, and video games when he has time for them.
His favorite quote:
“Singing in the shower is all fun and games until you get shampoo in your mouth. Then, it just becomes a soap opera.”

What he loves most about teaching music is “listening to the wonderful sounds we get to make together every day and seeing the students progress and get better in the process.”
