60-70% of all prof. musicians have complaints or injuries which interfere with playing at least 2 weeks/year. For amatory players the situation is less worse... Mostly pain in the musculoskeletal system. The musician with pain can't improve his/her playing; so that's a serious potential problem. Hardly any musician like to talk about it or seeks for professional help.
One of the problems is that it is difficult to find good professional help..
IEPE is a unique project for musicians (windplayers, singers but breathsupport is for every musician important!) and doctors and therapists who help injured musicians.
The newest insights will be presented about "how you, as a musician, must use your body in the most efficient way for making music"
At our interdisciplinary clinic for musicians and rehab. we see many injured musicians, also many people from the celtic scene. At the end of the treatment, paid by the insurance company (depending which country), many musicians play better then ever. But, we are doctors/therapists and not music school. We want to inform musicians with this information.
IEPE will be an phantastic event with a lot of short presentations by European experts combined with performances of the highest level to demonstrate the theory immediatly in practise.
For example: 1. have you ever done a warming up without instrument ? How do you do this?
2. many musicians do 'stretching of their fingers' as 'warming up'; do you know that this improves the chance of injuries!
3. many musicians play worse on performance/gig than at home. Breathing is going up, bad breath support, stuttering bow or notes etc. Do you know why? because of nervousness? Maybe, but your can learn simple tricks how to control this...
