Pain and discomfort in playing can be banished IF one has ergonomic equipment and IF one makes use of correct movement patterns.  The Paul Rolland Pedagogy Workshop brings the best to you concerning how to move when playing.  Being fitted for a custom Frisch and Denig chinrest allows one to move as Paul Rolland prescribed; “free from excessive tension.”

The fitting process involves choosing a chinrest of appropriate height, shape, and placement to the left or slightly over the tailpiece.  In the process, too, you are checked for instrument placement and correct instrument support according to Rolland principles of movement.

The Frisch and Denig Violin and Viola Chinrest Fitting System  includes standard height and lifted chinrests in a wide variety of shapes, chinrest diagnostic kits for players of any age, and a posture and instrument positioning process.  This patented system has brought comfort and security to players around the world.
