Aaron Rosenberg has taught at UMass Lowell since 2010, and served for four years as a Graduate Teaching Fellow in Music Theory, Analysis, and Keyboard Skills at the University of Oregon School of Music and Dance.
Many of Rosenberg’s compositions are informed by narrative, drawing inspiration from such varied sources as the Old American West, fantastic chickens, German Expressionistic film, and Bertrand Russell.
In 2011 Rosenberg's piano quintet "Crowd Scene" won a performance and recording by Ensemble Soli fan tutti in Darmstadt, Germany, for which he received a Composer Assistance Program grant from the American Music Center. In 2006, Rosenberg spent a month in Paris studying at the European American Musical Alliance’s Summer Composition Program, for which the University of Oregon presented him with the Gary E. Smith Summer Grant. In 2003, he received the San Francisco Conservatory’s Seventh Annual Kris Getz Award for Composition.
Rosenberg lives in Boston where he continues to compose and teach private lessons in piano and musicianship.
