Health and Safety:

The CMU Music Department is committed to informing students, faculty and staff of health and safety issues inherent to performing and listening to music.  This includes but is not limited to students taking responsibility for safely maintaining hearing, vocal and musculoskeletal health as well as injury prevention.  While these topics will be addressed during applied lessons and master classes, ultimately it is the responsibility of each student to take action.

Below are important and information documents from the National Association of Schools of Music.
