The Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) is delighted to announce that the third Musicians’ Mental Health Month, set to take place in April, will focus on performance anxiety. This year’s campaign is a collaboration with the Musicians’ Union (MU), the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM), and Tonic Rider.

To kick things off, Tonic Rider will be hosting an online workshop on performance anxiety, led by Jade Hughes. Additionally, one-to-one coaching opportunities with Marion Friend, MBE will also be available as part of the campaign.

As part of the campaign’s mission to provide year-round mental health support for musicians, the MU will be releasing free-to-access performance anxiety resources that offer guides from both clinical and coaching perspectives.

Kate Blackstone, YCAT project manager, said: “As a musician, educator and music psychologist myself, I understand all too well the impact that performance anxiety can have on careers and lives. Recent graduates may find it difficult to know where to turn for help and advice. That’s why I am thrilled that we at YCAT are partnering with industry experts to promote new resources that will provide ongoing support.”

The 2024 Musicians’ Mental Health Month will run until 30 April. To learn more about this exciting initiative or other news stories in the performing arts community, please visit our website here.
