Health & wellbeing event for classical & orchestral musicians

If you are a professional classical musician with an interest in health and wellbeing, you are invited to attend a free workshop supported by the British Psychological Society and Help Musicians UK. The workshop is aimed at classical and orchestral players promoting health psychology and behaviour change.

This is an innovative approach to musicians’ health through the lens of behavioural science. It will address questions such as:

  • How could your ability to learn music inform the way you master your own health?
  • What are some of the tools you could use to initiate behaviour change and gain more control over your lifestyle?
  • How could you maintain health behaviours without much effort, even when busy?
  • Could you use anxiety to your own advantage?

Don’t miss out on your chance to hear tips inspired by the latest research for free!

The workshop has run to great reviews by orchestra’s including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Sioned Williams, Principal Harpist of the BBC Symphony Orchestra said: "I found the workshop to be informative and helpful. I mainly understood about some of the processes and methods one can apply to improving one’s coping mechanism whilst working in a stressful environment such as in the music profession.

There was also information about healthier lifestyle in general, and the importance of being as fit as possible to deal with the mechanics of performance as well as the practical and psychological elements we deal with on a regular basis."

Facilitating the workshop is Raluca Matei, currently an AHRC-funded PhD student at the Royal Northern College of Music, focusing on health promotion among musicians. She has a background in health psychology and music, having studied violin with Maxim Vengerov at the Menuhin Academy in Switzerland.
