Addressing Performance Anxiety: YCAT Musicians’ Mental Health Month on The Strad

Breaking Down Performance Anxiety: YCAT’s Third Musicians’ Mental Health Month Focuses on This Common Struggle

The Young Classical Artists Trust (YCAT) is proud to announce that the third Musicians’ Mental Health Month 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. The line-up of events includes an online performance anxiety workshop by Tonic Rider, facilitated by Jade Hughes, and one-to-one coaching opportunities with Marion Friend, MBE.

As a musician, educator and music psychologist myself, I understand all too well the impact that performance anxiety can have on careers and lives, says YCAT project manager Kate Blackstone. Recent graduates may find it difficult to know where to turn for help and advice, so I’m really proud 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. For more information, visit here.
