Injury prevention seminar with Pamela Frank & physical therapist Howard Nelson

Sunday 15 April
5.45pm - 7.15pm

Acclaimed violinist and Chair of the Menuhin Competition Geneva 2018 jury Pamela Frank and physical therapist Howard Nelson will be sharing their expertise in movement analysis: how a musician’s movements and alignments can be injury-provoking or beneficial to their musculoskeletal health.

Howard Nelson has been a physical therapist since 1989, and currently works in private practice in New York. He has worked at the Curtis Institute of Music, Caramoor Center for the Arts, Tokyo International Viola Competition and in Rolle and Verbier, helping musicians with movement analysis and injury prevention. His physical therapy focus is on improving the biomechanics of how people use their bodies, and evaluating how postures and movements can be the cause of injury and pain. He and Pamela Frank recently formed a company, Fit as a Fiddle, that focuses on treatment of musicians.

The seminar will be part lecture, part performance. All music enthusiasts are welcome!
