The Music Program at Salisbury University takes pride in educating our students about musician wellness and encouraging an overall awareness of health and well-being. To thrive as successful musicians, our students learn strategies for healthy practicing, injury prevention, and dealing with stress and performance anxiety.

We offer a Wellness in Performance (MUSC 318) course every other year which is required of vocal and instrumental performance majors yet open to any music student. This course is team-taught by Dr. Linda Cockey (Professor of Music) and Mr. Pat Lamboni (Instructor of Athletic Training) and covers a variety of topics, including effective practice strategies, injury prevention, relaxation techniques, and the mind/body connection.

Musician wellness is also emphasized by our applied faculty in one-on-one lessons, and many additional resources are available through the Music Student, Staff, and Faculty Handbook and the links below.
