The book aims to help instrumentalists and instrument handlers to protect themselves from microbes

Infection Control for Instruments

In its own response to the coronavirus crisis, Eastman Music Company has launched ‘Infection Control for Instruments’ – a free eBook by ShelB Rindahl, with contributions by Laurel Partin and Christina Colston, about what germs are, how they get around, and how to protect against them by maintaining instrumental hygiene. 

The book, which follows on from Eastman University’s webinar series of the same name, is aimed both at players and at instrument handlers, and is intended for the benefit of the entire musical community.
