Rousseau-Cavender, Rosanne - Strings

Hello My Name Is...

Ms. Rousseau-Cavender


Most of my students call me Ms. RC. I am happy to be teaching strings in the Erwin District this year. The past several years I have been teaching General Music for Buncombe County Schools but my training and my first nine years of teaching were focused on stringed instruments.

My primary instruments are violin and viola but I can also play some bass and cello. I can hardly wait to get started working with Erwin High School students. I have some music in mind but also look forward to hearing student suggestions.
There are links to two of the songs, La La Land and Palladio. Click the links tab on the left to listen to them.

I grew up in a family of string players/teachers/performers. My dad has been helping me out with some instrument repair on the instruments at Eblen Intermediate and Erwin Middle.

I have two daughters, one in middle school and one in high school. One plays violin, the other is a percussionist.
My favorite hobbies are running, hiking and following my favorite baseball team.
