SLSQ Chamber Music Seminar: Pamela Frank and Howard Nelson - "Fit as a Fiddle"

June 23, 2018 -
4:00pm to 5:00pm
Campbell Recital Hall


In the last few years, physical therapist Howard Nelson has begun applying movement system principles to musicians. He has worked with musicians in Rolle and Verbier, Switzerland, Caramoor, Rice University, Chicago Music Institute, and the Tokyo Viola and Menuhin Competitions. 

He specializes in analyzing how movements and alignments in daily life, and while playing an instrument, can contribute to a pain problem. He uses video to help in his analysis, and can show musicians how to videotape themselves at home.

Along with Pamela Frank, their newest venture is the formation of Fit as a Fiddle Inc., a collaboration in which they use both their expertise for injury prevention and treatment of musicians.
