Abstract: “No pain, no gain.” Most of us have heard this phrase in relation to playing clarinet or to playing music in general. However, pain can be a symptom of a performance related injury and can prevent or slow technical and musical progress. How we practice, how often and how long we practice, and how we use and misuse our bodies while playing profoundly affects our ability to play efficiently and without pain.
