We are holding a series of taster sessions for members on the theme of Health and Wellbeing for Musicians. These sessions will be free for members to attend and we will be gathering feedback so as to put together a nationwide programme of activity working with BAPAM and the Musicians Benevolent Fund In 2014.
These Wellbeing sessions will be held in the London and Birmingham offices although there is the chance to book a free Performance Wellness skype session with Dr Louise Montello for those unable to travel to these venues.
Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity to benefit from the experience and wisdom of a range of professionals who work with musicians enabling them to have healthier and happier lifestyles.
There are limited places on each session. Details on how to book are to be found by clicking on the links below.
