STG 093 : Protecting Your Students From Hand Injury


word of mouth referrals

One of the lesser talked-about aspects of playing the guitar is protecting yourself from repetitive strain injuries in your hands and wrists. There’s nothing more disheartening than spending years of your life mastering an instrument like the guitar and then finding out you may have to give it up completely because you never took care of your hands. It’s a heart-breaking situation that can totally be prevented by learning how to play and practice correctly in the first place.

In this episode, I’ll talk about my own experiences with guitar-related hand injury and I’ll explain some of the anatomy behind how our bodies work when we play the guitar. I’ll also give you some tips about how to teach good practice principles and playing technique to your students so that they can get it right from the very beginning and never have to deal with hand injuries at all.
