Finding the Daily Motivation To Practise

How do we stay motivated when our profession is so impacted not just by Covid-19, but by politics, (infamously, in the UK musicians were described as ‘non-viable’), and our own varied personal circumstances?

This class is aimed at exploring that impact, whether it’s financial, emotional or indeed both.

How can we survive and stay motivated?


Developing and maintaining a capacity for peak performance is hugely demanding. In sport, there are often whole teams of therapists and coaches dedicated to helping players fulfil their potential. In the professional world of performing arts, such support structures are often lacking and we may have to seek out our own mentors, coaches and therapists of our own. There is a lot we can learn to do for ourselves to ensure a fulfilling and sustainable career lies ahead of us. We can develop greater resilience, a greater capacity to care for ourselves effectively and we can keep our creative self well-fuelled. These classes focus on building the necessary personal and interpersonal skills and resources to do this.

“Emma’s sessions are always informative and eye-opening”

“As busy people and musicians we often forget how important self-care is or don’t even know what it is! An hour a week really helps to tune in to yourself and observe the way you choose to live”
