Full Abstract: Presents the results of a 124-item self-assessment questionnaire completed by 220 French music students in three age groups: under 15 years (24%), 15-20 years (40%), and over 20 years (36%). The subjects were students of piano (84), guitar (33), violin (21), saxophone (16), flute (15), harp (7), horn (6), violoncello (5), trumpet (5), singing (4), bassoon (4), string bass (3), trombone (3), clarinet (3), tuba (3), oboe (2), harpischord (2), accordion (1), and synthesizer (1). Ninety-seven students mentioned a problem requiring medical attention, related to the spine (43%), stage fright (13%), hearing (9%), tendons (8%), eyes (8%), and head (7%). The goal of the study was not only to determine the specific medical needs of a population of young musicians, but also to better define the factors that contribute to the various problems.
