The Rousseau School

A school of teaching is generally observed to be teachers who hold a common doctrine or practice, or follow the same teacher. These are both true for the students of Dr. Rousseau, as well as “legacy students*,” many of whom have their own studios at both small and large universities. 


These teachers of the “Rousseau School” know that virtuoso teaching is an important part of their careers because they themselves have experienced it many times in Dr. Rousseau’s studio, workshops, and master classes. His ability to take students from where they are ("We really have no other choice") and guide them to success is remarkable and may prove to be the most enduring part of his legacy - "Teaching is about as close to immortality as most of us get."
