She won awards including the Gold Medal of Royal Conservatory of Music (for harp), and scholarhship for Féis Seattle (Gaelic music and harp). She is currently studing with Elizabeth Volpé Bligh, Vancouver Symphony Principal Harpist. She has also studied privately with Judy Loman, Gianetta Baril, Cynthia Price-Glynn, Cristina Braga, Sharlene Wallace and Alys Howe.

"I have always been fascinated by the harp, from its elegant shape to the versatile sound it produces. Every pluck, release, and muffling of the string contributes to an unique tone quality and texture. Harp allows the instrumentalist to interact with it directly and offers endless possibilities to produce sound. It is invigorating to be close to the strings and soundboard, as it allows me to feel the vibrations and be connected with my harp. It is my dream to be able to express freely with harp, to interpret music with different characters, and ultimately, to touch my listeners."

"Rosanna made our wedding day all the more memorable with her light yet precise playing of the harp. Walking down the aisle to Rosanna performing Pachelbel's Canon was the most magical experience that a bride could possibly wish for. Following our ceremony, our guests were further captivated by Rosanna's enchanting music while they enjoyed canapés and refreshments. Looking back at our special day, the harp was the perfect instrument and Rosanna's talent ensured a wonderful time for all."
