Lynne Denig is presenting “A Roll[and] Rock routine: Let’s Move!”, exploring movement in playing, why movement should be taught and how it can be taught. Learning to move properly when playing can prevent injury. Lynne provides a routine for establishing the best foundation for playing and guides participants in exercises that foster greater fluidity and ease in playing shoulder string instruments.

“Paul Rolland was the first to use science-based research to consider the role of movement in the acquisition of string instrument performance technique. His movement-centered approach has had world- wide influence in the teaching of children…”
Rolland stressed the importance of “freedom and ease in playing, and the use of good motion patterns free from excessive tension.” Rolland broke down violin technique into many individual and sequential motions for successful development. Rolland created games for young students to play in both private lessons and as a group to make learning a fun experience.

Lynne Denig was Rolland’s last graduate assistant, a professor at Northern Michigan University and served as President of VASTA. She has presented Rolland Pedagogy sessions at ASTA conventions and at workshops across the US, Europe, and South America. Please join her for this valuable workshop!
