Wellness Courses for All

These unprecedented times have increased stress and tension for all adults. Musicians and non-musicians alike too often ignore or deny aches, pains and medical problems as long as possible, playing or working through pain and accepting it as a price to be paid for doing something they love.

It does not have to be that way. A healthy, well-adjusted musician with an effortless technique has a much greater ability to maximize his or her musical potential. Many problems can be eased or totally erased by more careful attention to posture and healthy movement. The Blair School of Music offers several courses in wellness for musicians, or anybody seeking a holistic path to healthy living.

Fall 2020 Courses - Wednesday, 12:15-1:00 on Zoom!
