  • Health and Safety Guidelines | California State University Stanislaus
    with the common goal of improving the health care of the performing artist Texas Voice Center founded in 1989 for the diagnosis treatment and prevention of voice disorders National Center for Voice and Speech NCVS conducts research educates vocologists and disseminates information about voice and speech Vocal Health Center University of Michigan Health System recognized locally regionally and nationally as a leading institution for the treatment and prevention of voice disorders At the heart of the Center is a professional team comprised of experts from the University of Michigan Health System and U M School of Music encompassing the fields of Laryngology Speech Pathology and Vocal Arts Department Owned Instruments The Department of Music maintains a collection of musical instruments for checkout and use by members of the music faculty and students enrolled in our courses and performing ensembles As with other items we use in the course of our daily lives musical instruments must be cared for properly and cleaned regularly Each instrument in the Department s collection receives a thorough inspection at the conclusion of the academic year Every year thousands of dollars are spent to clean adjust and return instruments to full playing condition Antiseptically Clean More and more our society is pushing for products that are anti fungal anti bacterial and anti viral Some even go the next step further aiming to achieve sterile However our bodies by design are not meant to live in a sterile environment As kids we played in the dirt ate bugs and countless other things and became stronger because of it Keep in mind that total sterility is a fleeting moment Once a sterile instrument has been handled or exposed to room air it is no longer considered to be sterile It will however remain antiseptically clean until used Most viruses cannot live on hard surfaces for a prolonged period of time Some die simply with exposure to air However certain groups are quite hardy Therefore musicians must be concerned with instrument hygiene Users of school owned and rented musical equipment might be more susceptible to infections from instruments that are not cleaned and maintained properly If the cleaning process is thorough however musical instruments will be antiseptically clean Just as with the utensils you eat with soap and water can clean off anything harmful Antibacterial soaps will kill certain germs but all soaps will carry away the germs that stick to dirt and oils while they clean No germs no threat Infectious Disease Risks Sharing musical instruments is a widespread accepted practice in the profession However recent discussion in the profession has included concern regarding shared musical instruments and infectious disease especially HIV The Centers for Disease Control CDC has confirmed that there is no risk of transmission of HIV the virus that causes AIDS or Hepatitis B HBV through shared musical instruments The reasons for this are that these diseases are passed via a blood to blood sexual fluid or mucous membrane contact There has been no case of saliva transmission of HIV the virus that causes AIDS or Hepatitis B HBV Instrument Hygiene While the possibility of transmission of the above bacteria and viruses is not a real consideration it is apparent that there should be a protocol with regard to shared musical instruments Sharing of instruments is routine in music schools where students practice and perform on borrowed instruments throughout the year In our discussion with our consultants certain basic considerations and recommendations for standard operating procedures regarding shared instruments were recommended as follows All musicians or students should have their own instrument if possible All musicians or students should have their own mouthpiece if possible All students and faculty sharing reed instruments MUST have their own individual reeds Reeds should NEVER be shared If instruments must be shared in class alcohol wipes or Sterisol germicide solution both available from the Department of Music should be available for use between different people When renting or using a Department owned musical instrument each user must understand that regular cleaning of these musical instruments is required in order to practice proper hygiene Mouthpieces The mouthpiece flute headjoint English Horn and bassoon bocal and saxophone neck crook are essential parts of wind instruments As the only parts of these instruments placed either in or close to the musician s mouth research has concluded that these parts and reeds harbor the greatest quantities of bacteria Adhering to the following procedures will ensure that these instrumental parts will remain antiseptically clean for the healthy and safe use of our students and faculty Cleaning the Flute Head Joint Using a cotton swab saturated with denatured isopropyl alcohol carefully clean around the embouchure hole Alcohol wipes can be used on the flute s lip plate to kill germs if the flute shared by several players Using a soft lint free silk cloth inserted into the cleaning rod clean the inside of the headjoint Cleaning Bocals Bocals should be cleaned every month with a bocal brush mild soap solution and running water English Horn bocals can be cleaned with a pipe cleaner mild soap solution and running water Be careful not to scratch the inside of the bocal with the exposed wire ends of the pipe cleaner Cleaning Hard Rubber Ebony Mouthpieces Mouthpieces should be swabbed after each playing and cleaned weekly Select a small to use less liquid container that will accommodate the mouthpiece and place the mouthpiece tip down in the container Fill the container to where the ligature would begin with a solution of half water and half white vinegar 50 water and 50 hydrogen peroxide works too Protect clarinet mouthpiece corked tenons from moisture After a short time use an appropriately sized mouthpiece brush to remove any calcium deposits or other residue from inside and outside surfaces This step may need to be repeated if the mouthpiece is excessively dirty Rinse the mouthpiece thoroughly and then saturate with Sterisol germicide solution Place on paper towel and wait one minute Wipe
