“Ready to Perform”
Sue Callan-Harris, MSPT, CLT

Performing artists follow the same guidelines as elite athletes in preparation for practice, rehearsal, and performance. In this presentation, we will offer screening tools for assessing the musician's physical capacity to meet the ergonomic demands of an upcoming performance schedule. We will also explore "tried and true” planning strategies for optimal physical performance.

Wellness at Eastman is a new monthly seminar series focused on a healthy and mindful approach to a career as a performing artist. Topics will cover physical and mental health, and how artists can create a sustainable path for their future.
