ROLLAND STRING WORKSHOP AT MASON
For String Teachers, Players and Students
The Rolland String Pedagogy Workshop is an exciting, internationally-acclaimed program for innovative string teachers, players and students. Learn the lauded playing and teaching techniques of the late Paul Rolland from professionals who studied with him, including Gerald Fischbach. Paul Rolland (1911-1978), former Professor of Violin and String Pedagogy at University of Illinois, is recognized around the globe for emphasizing correct movement patterns and playing that is free from excessive tension. Our program builds on that legacy. (Violin, Viola, Cello & Bass covered with classroom tips included!)
