In the Paul Rolland String Camp, young violin, viola and cello students will be challenged with not only playing correct notes, but will be taught to develop freedom of movement in playing, free from excessive tension. Students will take part in small and large group instruction with our engaging and experienced faculty and showcase what they have learned at the end of the week. The camp will offer a window into Paul Rolland pedagogy not just for students, friends and family, but also for the dozens of string teaching professionals visiting Urbana-Champaign for the Paul Rolland String Pedagogy Workshop.

The Paul Rolland String Camp is a program of the Illinois Music Academy of the School of Music of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
