Music educator and researcher. Visiting assistant professor and coordinator of music education at Bucknell University Music.
My name is Nicholas Roseth (pronounce), and I serve as visiting assistant professor and coordinator of music education at Bucknell University in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. I teach Introduction to Music, Introduction to Music Teaching, Instrumental Methods & Literature, Music for Exceptional Children, Principles of Music Education, Student Teacher Seminar, and Woodwind Methods, among others. I previously taught instrumental and secondary general music in Colorado, including band, orchestra, jazz band, class piano, class guitar, and STOMP. While teaching in Colorado, I also served as instructional mentor to new teachers in my district. As a doctoral student at Indiana University, I was program coordinator of Young Winds (a pre-college program providing musical instruction to local middle school band students), student teacher supervisor, and associate instructor in instrumental methods. As a visiting assistant professor of music education at Indiana University, I taught undergraduate and graduate courses including Inclusive Participatory Music Practices, Music Teacher Education, College Music Teaching, and Qualitative Research in Music Education. I have received awards for excellence in teaching from the Pennsylvania Music Educators Association Society for Music Teacher Education and from the Education Foundation for the St. Vrain Valley. My primary research interests include LGBTQ studies, well-being, place and space, and nonverbal behaviors in teaching and learning. I have presented research and pedagogical sessions at regional and national conferences, and I have research published in Research & Issues in Music Education, Journal of Music Teacher Education, and Journal of Research in Music Education. I hold a Bachelor of Music (BM) degree from Susquehanna University, a Master of Music Education (MME) degree from the University of Colorado Boulder, and a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree from Indiana University Bloomington.
