Every Student Should Be First Chair!

Help me give my students proper posture to produce the very best sound!

My Students

My students' love of learning is infectious! They are highly motivated and willing to do what it takes to uphold our program's high standards. They take ownership and have a sense of duty in the classroom, school, community, state, country, and world.

Excited and ready to share their musical gift with the world!

My students are committed to collaborating with others, competing at the highest level, and succeeding among the best. They care about our school's reputation and strive to create a positive culture in today's world.

My Project

Musicians often perform in forced postures over a long period of time, which in the worst case may lead to playing-related musculoskeletal disorders. In this context, the ergonomics of the musician's chair (construction and surface quality) can be an influencing factor, with impact on the seating position of the upper body and the pressure distribution of the bottom.

Musical health is very important to the success of students!

Music is a lifelong joy! Many students continue playing after they leave music programs. Some make it a profession, while others continue learning and growing as a hobby. I want to ensure the musical health of my students to make sure they can enjoy music for years to come!
