All musicians are invited to attend!
Injury Prevention Workshop
with Kathe Hannauer
Monday, August 3 at 1 – 2 pm
Katherine Hannauer has been a professional violinist for over 30 years, performing and teaching throughout the New York metro area and beyond. In 2018, she returned to school, and recently completed coursework for a Master of Science degree in Occupational Therapy from the SUNY Downstate College of Health Professions in Brooklyn.
Originally developed to satisfy a course requirement for the OTMS degree program, the Play Without Pain workshop was designed to address the problem of repetitive strain injury (RSI) in the instrumental musician population.
The workshop is geared toward prevention, and comprises educational and experiential components, including an overview of anatomy and biomechanics, exploration of body awareness, optimal posture and breathing, and simple, user-friendly yoga-based movements that can be easily incorporated into daily practice.
Participants should wear comfortable clothing, have a bit of space for movement, and a chair
(to sit on to play instrument).
