Ross has taught in various colleges and public school. He has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Ohio University; a Master of Arts in Low Brass Performance from University of Alaska, Fairbanks; and is ABD (All-But-Dissertation) in a Ph.D. program in Comparative Arts from Ohio University where he has majors (equivalents of master degrees) in Music History, Art History, Theatre History, Latin, French (reading only), and a minor in Aesthetics.

He has taken 24 graduate hours of Latin and 18 graduate hours in French for research reading and passed the "barriers" for his doctoral degree. He once wrote a newspaper in Latin for fun (just one page) for a few weeks while studying at Ohio U. in jest using humorous but clean irony in how life could have played out using Roman laws in personal life. He enjoys reading Latin and French a little at night before going to sleep. Latin and music theory students tutored fared much better under his tutoring.

Latin can straighten out formal English problems encountered by students. Ross thinks that if any language should be studied, Latin is that language. Other languages would be so simple and easier to understand and master after that.

Subjects

History

Music History

Music History

Music History has been one of my favorite subjects. Other than the general undergraduate music history, I have studied graduate studies in each of the periods of music history including source readings. Also, I took a course in graduate school on medieval music and transcribed music from 800 A.D. onward through the end of the period. I particularly like the studies of Phillipe de Vitry. Some day, I hope to translate his treatise on mensuration.

Music

Ear Training,

Ear Training

I taught music theory and ear training in Howard College. The students I taught passed their "barriers" exams at a four-year colleges as they majored in music covering ear training, keyboard, and music theory proficiencies. I scored very high on my Texas teachers certificate examination as well as each graduate school I attended (University of Alaska, Fairbanks; Ohio University, University of Oklahoma).
General Music,

General Music

I taught Introduction to Fine Arts at Ohio University as well as Music Appreciation and American Music at Howard College and Ranger Junior College. I also aided the theatre departments when background music was needed as well as their musicals. Many courses in Music History and History of Music Theory aided me in achieving very high goals using higher standards than most instructors. Few students did not enjoy the classes.

Trombone

Trombone

I have a Master of Arts in Low Brass Performance in Music from the University of Alaska, Fairbanks. While there, I performed with bands, symphonies, brass quintets, other ensembles and performed many solo recitals and programs. Since then, I have performed with other symphonies (some for pay), bands and quintets and am currently playing with the Heightsmen in Harker Heights, Texas. I do play some string bass as well. Playing music is my favorite past time.
