COVID-19 Update: In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it has become necessary to suspend the 2020 Paul Rolland String Pedagogy Workshop. We acknowledge that this is disappointing news, and we express our deep appreciation to those who have been working tirelessly towards producing what was promising to be one of the best Rolland Workshops to date.
It is notable that this particular year marks the 50th anniversary of the completion of Paul Rolland’s highly influential String Research Project. During this anniversary year, it is disappointing that we will be unable to gather in-person to celebrate Paul Rolland’s profound contributions to string pedagogy. However, we take inspiration from Rolland himself, who made use of the cutting-edge technology of his day to ensure that his work from the String Research Project could be shared widely. To that end, we are pleased to offer the following offerings online:
