Welcome to my new Practice-Smarter- Blog

Dr. Wolff's Blog

Today, I will start posting small video sequences or pictograms with exercises that are helpful to pianists, as well as other musicians, to reduce tension in certain body parts. They might be helpful to relieve playing-related stiffness, help you to maintain a healthy playing posture and reduce overall stress. To the left, you will find all topics, sorted by day.

Once you take a break during practicing, try an exercise at a time - and see how practice and playing change after focussing on a certain part of your body!

Please make sure that you consult a physician or an musicians' PT when you have preconditions,  pain, any discomfort or any other symptoms. THIS IS NO TREATMENT ADVICE. Exercises for treatment require a personal assessment and are administered by a health care professional that has seen the patient. The exercises might be the same, but need to be assigned to the patient according to assessment and status of injury. I do not assume any liability for exercises not executed properly.
