Peabody Peak Performance Fundamentals is a collaborative effort among Peabody Conservatory faculty and staff, the Johns Hopkins Rehabilitation Network Clinic for Performing Artists at Peabody, and leading experts in the fields of performance health and performance psychology. The artist-centered approach consists of a series of presentations and interactive workshops required for all incoming undergraduate performance majors designed to enhance mental and physical health, maximize effectiveness in practice and daily living to achieve peak performance, and recognize and manage injuries if they occur. Peak Performance Fundamentals is designed to keep Peabody musicians and dancers thriving in their academic program, developing to their full capacity as artists, and setting the groundwork for career success and longevity.
The program of introductory presentations and interactive workshops took place online during orientation.
In an effort to integrate wellness and injury prevention education into specific performance contexts, additional discipline-specific presentations on body alignment, anatomy, and movement are available to be scheduled by department or studio.
