Playing (Less) Hurt by : Janet Horvath
Making music at any level is a powerful gift. While musicians have endless resources for learning the basics of their instruments and the theory of music; few books have explored the other subtleties and complexities that musicians face in their quest to play with ease and skill. The demands of solitary practice; hectic rehearsal schedules; challenging repertoire; performance pressures; awkward postures; and other physical strains have left a trail of injured; hearing-impaired; and frustrated musicians who have had few resources to guide them.
Playing Less Hurt addresses this need with specific tools to avoid and alleviate injury. Impressively researched; the book is invaluable not only to musicians; but also to the coaches and medical professionals who work with them. Everyone from dentists to orthopedists; audiologists to neurologists; massage therapists and trainers will benefit from Janet Horvath's coherent account of the physiology and psyche of a practicing musician. Writing with knowledge; sympathetic insight; humor; and aplomb; Horvath has created an essential resource for all musicians who want to play better and feel better.
