The development of instrumental programs under professionally trained music teachers in the schools of Ontario (and indeed in other provinces) owes much to Rosevear's pioneering work. So do music education courses at many Canadian universities. His influence also created higher standards in symphonic band concert programming. The Canadian Music Educators' Association performance award for concert band is named for Rosevear. In his band and orchestra concerts Rosevear premiered works by John Beckwith, Gary Kulesha, Godfrey Ridout, Gerhard Wuensch and others.
