Event Details

A Royal Musical Association, British Forum for Ethnomusicology and National Association for Music in Higher Education event


12 and 13 May 2018


Individuals and communities’ well-being and mental health can benefit from musical audition and performance. Conversely, we are increasingly becoming aware of the physical and mental challenges that music professionals from all areas face. These can be further accentuated when considered in a high-pressure environment such as academia. This event proposes to bring together researchers and practitioners to share their research on positive and negative effects of music and music making. It also aims to offer a space to discuss related issues affecting these communities. The workshop will be an opportunity to share and establish strategies to protect and improve their well-being and mental health.
