Check out this fascinating article on performance injury: http://www.peabody.jhu.edu/4148
This article discusses performance injuries in musicians, both professional and amateur. This is a great reminder that injuries generally begin early and are generally due to a poor understanding of anatomy as applied to the instrument and to movement with that instrument. This also applies to us as we use our instruments (and voice) daily in our classrooms.
Take care of your health this year!
