Writer, Performer

Rosalind was born at Wahroonga in Sydney N.S.W. on 13th March, 1937.  In 1955 she was awarded a Department of Education four year scholarship to study music at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and Sydney Teachers' College.  Here her pedagogy studies included piano, vocal training, music composition, musicology and education.
