HI THERE,

MY NAME IS AUSTIN PANCNER

I am a musician injury coach, educator, and bass trombonist. As a coach, I am on a mission to help other musicians live and perform without pain. I believe every musician should be able to perform basic maintenance on their body without having to rely on doctors, physical therapists, or massage therapists to sustain their career.

TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE TODAY

ARE YOU READY...

… to put the science back into your recovery and understand why your body is in pain?

… to achieve true healing and put your injury behind you for good?

... to confidently live and perform without pain?

THEN LET'S GET STARTED!

What is a Functional Musician?

HOLISTIC APPROACH TO LIVING & PERFORMING

To be a Functional Musician means having a sustainable health and wellness foundation that supports your performance and daily life. To be a Functional Musician you must focus on three concepts:

01

Recovery Habits

Regardless of career path, recovery habits are essential to your wellbeing, daily life, and  optimum day-to-day recovery. This area gives you energy and focus, while helping you feel great on a more consistent basis.

02

Body

Playing an instrument is a physical demand. Some even argue musicians are athletes (hint: they are!). There are certain skills you need to help your body support a high level of practice and performance. If you lack these skills, you increase your chance for developing tension, pain, or a performance-related injury.

03

Mind

This is one of the most important, but often most neglected areas. It doesn't matter how much injury prevention or rehabilitation you do, if you have roadblocks, limiting beliefs, or mindsets holding you back, you will ultimately fall short of the life and career you envision.

TESTIMONIALS

SOME KIND WORDS

Austin is a great coach, he's perceptive, smart, and such a nice and friendly person, and he always listened attentively and responded to my specific questions and needs in our regular sessions. I'd recommend the program to anyone who wants to live a healthy life as a musician!​
