She teaches MUS 122 and MUS 232 Private Voice Instruction, MUS 272 Group Voice, and MUS 277 Entrepreneurship for Creative and Performing Artists.

Rose's support for students goes beyond teaching. She successfully fundraised over $6,000 to enable a student of color to graduate, and, as a Dreamzone Ally, she argued in favor of passing a River Forest Welcoming Resolution (see https://www.vrf.us/events/event/155).

Before joining the Dominican faculty, Rose taught with the Lyric OperaKids program for Lyric Opera of Chicago, where she performed for 20 years. She taught voice lessons at Columbia College's Sherwood Conservatory, where she also served as interim department head and was on faculty at the Merit School of Music.
