Oxford, United Kingdom (PressExposure) September 08, 2009 -- Often musicians are at risk of severe pain, physical injuries and nerves that can even stop them from playing. Therefore anyone who plays a musical instrument, students, amateurs and professionals, should pay special attention to prevent this issue, because it is possible to play without pain and stage fright, although this unfortunately is not taught in most music schools.
This advice comes from Monica Cuneo, a respected Oxford based viola player, violin & viola teacher specialized in the prevention and elimination of these problems, translator of three groundbreaking books on the subject by the internationally leading authority, Kato Havas, author of a teaching DVD on this.
"Many musicians have been told that there is nothing to do about it, that's 'part of the game', but this is not true, it doesn't have to be so."
Playing an instrument involves the use of many parts of the body in a very precise way, for a long time, so it is absolutely necessary that players know how to use them correctly.
