Working in the music industry can really test your resilience. Even when the world is not battling a pandemic, the stark highs and lows, financial insecurity and anti-social working hours can really take their toll.

Suitable for performers, composers, sound engineers, or people holding any other career in the music industry – this free session will help you to learn how to face these challenges and maintain your mental wellbeing through the tough times.

Wellness professional Jack Williamson will introduce you to nine different ways to stay mentally resilient during testing times, providing you with tools and techniques you can implement day-to-day to help you build your own resilience.

We advise reserving your place in advance – make your booking now on Help Musicians’ Eventbrite listing.
