All musicians are invited to complete the survey regardless of whether or not they currently have any playing related pain.

The results of this survey will be anonymous and used to raise awareness of injury rates to help with considerations and re-evaluation of the current injury prevention plans implemented in Scotland. The research will also be shared for educational purposes.
