The music industry requires a specific lifestyle different to other career paths. There are a multitude of resulting issues related to this lifestyle which are intrinsic to the business, for both artists and industry employees. Specific mental and physical stress factors can be detrimental to health, well being and business. These issues aren’t typically discussed proactively, or at all. In this workshop, we will explore and address the unique wellness challenges that live in the music industry which cause the most problematic types of chronic stress, including the negative impacts this has on business. We’ll workshop both proactive and reactive tactics that can help, whether you’re an artist or on the business side.
