Rosalind Hall, a native of Wales, received a Bachelor's of Music from the Royal Academy of Music in London, England, in 1977. She was an associate of the London College of Music in 1977, and was a licentiate of the Royal Academy of Music (singing) in 1976. In 1978, she received a postgraduate Music Teacher's Certificate from London University. After training at London’s Royal Academy of Music and majoring in vocal performance at Edinburgh and London Universities, Hall moved to the US in 1989 to pursue post-graduate studies in Choral Conducting at Brigham Young University. She received her degree in 1993.

Upon completion of her studies, she taught for seven years at the Waterford School, a liberal arts college preparatory school in Sandy, Utah. There she helped develop the Waterford Fine Arts Academy and served as director of the choral program and chair of the music department. In 1999, Hall returned to BYU to take the place of Mack J. Wilberg, who was appointed Associate Music Director of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Music Director of the Temple Square Chorale in May of that year.

She is currently an assistant professor of music, teaching classes in conducting and choral literature for both undergraduates and graduates. In addition, she is the director of both BYU Men's Chorus and Concert Choir. Both choirs were invited to perform at the Western Division Convention of the American Choral Directors Association in Salt Lake City in 2006.

Hall is well known for her experience in music curriculum development and her innovative and vivacious approach to rehearsal. In 2012 Hall was presented as one of the top 300 professors in the country. In 2013, Hall ranked as one of the top 25 most popular professors in America.

In 2015, Hall received the Creative Works Award from BYU, which recognizes faculty members who demonstrate outstanding achievement in the development of creative works that have had wide acceptance and national or international distribution.
