MMTA Fall Conference

On Saturday, October 6th we will be having our MMTA Fall Conference at the Portland Conservatory of Music. The conference title is Piano Technique On And Off The Bench. Laura Kargul, USM Director of Keyboard Studies, and Craig Williamson, Occupational Therapist, teacher of muscular retraining at USM, and author of Muscular Retraining for Pain Free Living and Pain-Free Sitting, Standing and Walking, will present workshops on healthy practices. 80% of musicians suffer from a playing-related injury at some point in life! Participants should dress comfortably and bring a yoga mat or towel for the floor — we will be moving around and stretching a bit. If you are uncomfortable doing so, there will be seating for those who just want to watch. Click here for more information and online registration.
