Music and Mental Wellness Workshops

Image by Chris Montgomery

The mental wellness needs of musicians are very unique. Through video and in-person workshops, I seek to create a space for discussion of the mental health issues facing musicians of all areas. Sessions can be tailored to individuals in training, those who are freelancing, as well as those in volunteer ensemble communities. 

Workshop topics include:

  • Mindfulness, focus, and concentration

  • Self-caresleep & nutrition

  • Perfectionism & Performance anxiety

  • Self-talk

  • Professional Boundaries

  • Emotional Health & awareness

  • Creating safety during difficult conversations

And may be focused on:

  • Navigating a freelancing career

  • Wellness through auditions

  • The impact of Covid-19 on music-making
