About this event

The Resilient Musician

In this 90-minute interactive workshop that is suitable for all musicians, whatever their level of experience or ability, Jo will explore the important topic of resilience. She describes resilience as the capacity to respond adaptively to life’s challenges (big and small), enabling us to emerge from adversity with renewed strength, knowledge and abilities.

During the session, you will gain an understanding of your own resilience profile, including the factors that are likely to protect your resilience and those that might be risk factors for you. Jo will share some ideas about how you can resource your own resilience so that you can continue your resilience-building journey beyond this brief workshop.
