Playing Related Pain in our young musicians: What you need to Know

I had the great privilege of changing patterns, positions and perspectives as I presented to the Vermont Youth Orchestra Association last week. This is a group of 78 of the most talented high school musicians in the state of Vermont. As they celebrate a year of Tchaikovsky and practice his 5th symphony, we talked about playing related pain, it’s 68% prevalence in musicians 7-17 years old, spatial orientation bias, asymmetry in playing, and the importance of zones of apposition. I left them with a reference sheet of PRI prevention-based exercises in hopes of changing their fate. You can find that on our patient information page.
