This workshop was designed specifically with the performance health needs of flutists in mind. Topics include repetitive stress/overuse injuries, performance anxiety and its effect on movement and muscle tension, and corrective exercise strategies to help remedy faulty movement patters and relieve muscle imbalances. Participants will leave with a greater knowledge of the human movement system as it pertains to the flute, as well as a toolbox of exercises and strategies to keep themselves and their students strong and injury-free.
