Students enrolled in music programs should have a basic understanding regarding the maintenance of health and safety within the contexts of practice, performance, teaching and listening. On this page you can find documents on how to maintain your mental, neuromusculoskeletal, hearing, and vocal health. Students who are stage managers are also required to read the instruction manual and go through equipment training.
