1. Joining the research

I joined the research because when I played concerts I got tired half way through and suffered discomfort. I felt my joints after rehearsing for half an hour or so. It didnít really hurt, but it was an unpleasant feeling. I had done some Mensendieck therapy, but I had the feeling that I could learn more about posture. In the time just before the research project my playing discomfort had increased. After ten minutes of playing I felt stuck. I couldnít play for more than half an hour. Now I can play for one-and-a-half hours without stopping if I want and then still have no complaints.
