Professional musicians rarely think of themselves as athletes, when in fact they use their bodies in ultra specific, repetitive ways during intensive live performances, long recording sessions, and often, grueling tour schedules. Yet unlike professional athletes who have teams of people who direct both preventative and injury care, professional musicians aren’t usually taught how to care for their bodies and minds while honing or expressing their craft.
In this course we’ll learn about lifestyle, postural, and overuse injury considerations specific to 6 main categories of professional musicians: vocals, piano and keyboard, drums and percussion, guitar, strings, and horns. Understanding each musician’s particular challenges will help you formulate the best treatment plan and take-home recommendations for this special set of clients.
