Justin Rosin

Award-winning composer and conductor Justin Rosin has written concert pieces and scored independent films, shorts and commercials. His passion is to collaborate using instruments and technology to create inspiring and evocative music. Mr. Rosin thoroughly believes that music is a universal language that can effectively communicate any human emotion through any artistic medium. Mr. Rosin started his Master’s of Music Composition Program in Fall 2016 at one of NYC’s top music conservatories, Mannes School of Music, where he studied with renowned composer Dr. Lowell Liebermann. Mr. Rosin was chosen as the primary film composer for the student thesis films and graduated in May of 2018.

Mr. Rosin was selected to compose a piece for the 7:1 dance collaboration project run by the Rovaco Dance Company. Upon reviewing the May 2017 premiere of Mr. Rosin’s piece, Courtney Escoyne wrote in The Stewardship Report that the work was “most affecting” and “at its most cohesive.”  He has studied under several industry professionals including John Kaefer (Quantum Break, Sequestered, Shark Tank), Michael Bacon (The Jewish Americans, Boy Interrupted, The Bacon Brothers) and Sam Estes (Music Editor on Inception, The Dark Knight Rises and Co-Founder of Sonicsmiths/Amper Music).

Mr. Rosin won the orchestral composition award for Rutgers Annual Orchestra Day in June of 2016 and was ranked in the top percentile of the Marvin Hamlisch film scoring competition on a global level, which was judged by Oscar-winning composer Mychael Danna. He has interned at Sandblast Productions, Creative Group and The National Chorale where he did several things ranging from scoring commercials to assisting with live camera concert directors and stagehand sound design. He was also recently commissioned to compose a choral and orchestral work for a concert honoring a time-honored music professor at his alma mater, WHS.

Mr. Rosin has also excelled as both a teacher and a tutor. In 2011, he began his own business teaching piano, strings, string-instrument repair, composition/music theory and electronic music production. Additionally, he has set up sound and instrumentation for orchestras and bands including Trey Anastasio of Phish and The National Chorale at Lincoln Center and has performed at Carnegie Hall. He released a solo acoustic guitar album in September 2015 titled, Impassioned and also does string-instrument repair and maintenance. While working as an administrator at the NJ Workshop for the Arts, Mr. Rosin was given many opportunities to step into leadership roles, both as administrator and educator. He has instructed and performed music for Nursing Homes and has coordinated/taught for Music Counts which provides music lessons to under-privileged youth. He has also developed leadership roles in his studies at Mannes in both composition courses and Michael Bacon’s Film Scoring and Music Technology course.
Mr. Rosin has worked as an Audio/Video Editor and Sound Engineer for NV Factory and NYC’s highly acclaimed music studio Threshold Music. While there he did live camera and microphone operation for classical music concerts as well as mixing and mastering in post-production. Mr. Rosin was accepted into the highly competitive SCL NY Film Scoring mentorship for the Fall 2018. Most recently he has been doing work as a composer and sound designer for 4 Elements Music Library and Q Department where he primarily writes music for commercials vide games and Netflix TV shows. Mr. Rosin hopes to continue working as a composer for film, multimedia and the concert stage in the Los Angeles area.
