Being a Musician and Artist
You are welcome to read through our own handbook, “Being a musician – to be able to give your all when you need”, which focuses on ergonomics for musicians.
To be on stage performing music for an enthusiastic audience can be pleasurable, fantastic, challenging and demanding, but can also often become an uncomfortable and nerve-wracking experience, after which it can be almost impossible to understand how you were able to get from start to finish. And perhaps you have just successfully performed yet another concert, even though you suffered from pain in your shoulder from start to finish.
