To disseminate my research I have designed lectures and workshops. Each lecture can be a stand-alone presentation on the topic and durations can run from hour hour to three hours in length.  PowerPoint provides visual representation of the material covered and students receive a handout that includes websites and a book list to further their education on the lecture topic.  The lectures have received positive reviews and 100% of students attending reported that they have new ideas to try.  If your program would be interested in having a lecture presented at your school, contact me for more information.

Musicians are athletes, yet very little time is devoted during the study of an instrument on how to stay healthy for the duration of a career.  With the high prevalence of performing related musculoskeletal disorders among all musicians (some studies report injury rates as high as 88%) this workshop presents multiple strategies to prevent pain and injuries related to playing.  Attendees will identify factors that increase the risk of developing an injury.  A brief discussion on anatomy will be followed with proper stretching techniques and muscle health considerations.  Multiple effective self-treatment and practice strategies will be presented.  The mental aspects of injury will be discussed, as well as knowing when and where to seek professional assistance.  This workshop provides musicians with hands-on experience preventing injuries and provides tools to foster a long healthy career in music.
