Hearing Protection

Musculoskeletal injuries are not uncommon for musicians. These include nerve damage from repetitive motion, poor posture, or poor technique; lower back strain from moving equipment, and many others that are not so common. Information about those injuries can be found in the Music Student Handbook.
