Full Abstract: Instrument-specific injury rates of students at a university-level music school were studied over a 14-year period. The overall injury rate was 8.3%. The instruments were divided into low-, medium-, and high-rate tertiles based on their associated injury rates. Brass instruments, as well as the oboe and bassoon, were in the first tertile. Medium-injury-rate instruments included the bowed string instruments, saxophone, clarinet, organ, flute, and percussion. The piano, guitar, and harp fell into the highest tertile. Women had a higher overall injury rate than men.
