Presenter: Dr. Linda Cockey (Salisbury University)

Implementing health and wellness information into a music program can be done in a variety of ways, regardless of the size or kind of music degrees offered at an institution. This session examines different ways schools can educate students, staff and faculty on musicians’ health issues, both physiological and psychological on an on-going/semester by semester basis. Providing the necessary tools for understanding basic hearing health, proper vocal and musculoskeletal health, injury prevention, performance anxiety and mental health awareness are reviewed.
