Playing (Less) Hurt – Free Seminar on Injury Prevention for Musicians

Playing music takes a toll on the body.  How does a musician, working grueling schedules over a long career, avoid injury?

You are invited to attend CMA’s next First Tuesdays seminar, led by cellist Janet Horvath, author of Playing (Less) Hurt—An Injury Prevention Guide for Musicians. 

In addition to discussing susceptibility, danger signals and risky postures, Horvath will present specific injury-prevention strategies, ergonomic solutions, instrument modifications, orthotics, chairs, and other resources for all musicians –string, wind, and brass players, pianists and percussionists. She will also delve into rehabilitation strategies for those already hurting.

Associate principal cello of the Minnesota Orchestra, Janet Horvath is also a soloist and chamber musician. A trailblazer in speaking and writing about the physical stresses experienced by musicians, she has advocated for improvements in working conditions for musicians of all genres. Her book Playing (Less) Hurt—An Injury Prevention Guide for Musicians received the 2009 Independent Publishers gold medal in the health category.
