12:00 - 12:50 - LECTURE: MAURO BANFI
“Prevention techniques for guitar players”



Playing instruments often causes significant strains on a musician’s body. To avoid physical problems, it is fundamental to keep good body control throughout the act of playing. This workshop aims to uncover the most important problems in the use of the guitar. The guitarist will learn simple exercises and strategies to treat possible overload and to improve the musical performance starting from a biomechanical approach.
