Creating space for mental wellness in classical music
By Jalayne Mitchell
Classical Wellness is a space created by musicians and for musicians to integrate more mental wellness into our music lives, so we can do the work that is required of us without sacrificing our basic needs.
Many of us know that in order to succeed, we need to put in a lot of time and energy. What we aren't being taught is how to create balance between our wellbeing and our work. Devoting every second of your time and every ounce of your energy to your music is not what makes a healthy musician, even if that is what we want to believe. Knowing how to take care of ourselves WHILE putting in the work is the key to a happy and healthy career.
