Eastman’s physical therapist Sue Callan-Harris will share what tools are freely available to use and when to schedule an assessment with a PT. 

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.
