Taking care of yourself as a musician means building good habits in your musical and personal life. It means learning to use your Energy, Balance and Coordination in study and performance. It means Taking Time to be creative, and to rest and stay fit.

Practicing with these things in mind improves your technique and develops your talent.

Musicians also need to have up-to-date Basic Information in order to prevent common problems like hearing loss, RSI and burnout.

On this site, you can find the information and links you need to get started taking care of yourself as a musician. As a student at the conservatory, there are Courses and Lessons that you can follow, or audit, if the course is not offered in your year. Your Tutor and the Student Service Centrum is also there for you if you have questions about your study. The Musicians Health program is being developed each year, and the site will be added to periodically.
