I'm often asked for my list of book recommendations for musicians' health so I thought I'd compile a list of books I think every musician should own!
Playing Less Hurt by Janet Horvath
Playing Less Hurt is written through the lens of a professional musician who struggled with an injury. This invaluable resource helps musicians feel like they aren't alone in their journey and is filled with advice from a person who has walked through injury herself!
The Psychology of Music Performance Anxiety by Dianna Kenny
The Psychology of Music Performance was written by one of the leading researchers in the field of performing arts health.
