Faculty, Eastman School of Music

Carol Rodland made her solo debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra as a teenager and since then has established a distinguished international career as a concert and recording artist and pedagogue. Fanfare describes her playing as “delicious…larger than life, sweetly in tune, and infinitely variegated.” A passionate advocate for contemporary music, she has premiered and recorded works by Kenji Bunch, Dan Coleman, David Liptak, Christopher Theofanidis, and Augusta Read Thomas. A dedicated teacher, Ms. Rodland has recently been appointed to the faculty of the Juilliard School. She is also an artist-faculty member at the Perlman Music Program, the Bowdoin International Music Festival, and the Karen Tuttle Coordination Workshop. Previous positions have included professorships at the Eastman School of Music, where she was Co-Chair of the String Department, at New England Conservatory, where she was recognized in 2005 with the “Krasner Award for Excellence in Teaching”, and at the Musikhochschule “Hanns Eisler” Berlin.  In 2009, she founded “If Music Be the Food…”, a concert series and now national musicians’ movement which raises awareness and support for the hungry through the sharing of great music.
