Abstract: The Special Article in this issue of Medical Problems of Performing Artists has the potential to usher in a new era in improving the lives of musicians (and potentially other performing artists) around the world. The Health Promotion in Schools of Music conference that was held in Texas in the fall of 2004 brought together a rich mixture of music and performing arts medicine professionals. Stimulated by the new National Association of Schools of Music accreditation standard that requires undergraduate music students to receive instruction in injury prevention and ¿occupational¿ health promotion, participants in the conference worked diligently for 3 days to discuss what we know, what we don¿t know, and how to approach the vital yet immensely complex issue of health promotion and injury prevention for college- level music students. While the recommendations in the Special Article are intentionally broad and allow each school to develop its own program, they are based on a true ¿state of the art¿ analysis of the field.
