Musicians have the most wonderful profession; they have the opportunity to create music as an art form for a vibrant audience. However, being trained and working as a musician, also means confronting one’s physical, mental, and existential wellbeing. This presentation addresses time limited individual Guided Imagery and Music with professional musicians: exploring music listening as a health resource.

Gro Trondalen proposes an open music listening approach, supported by drawings and verbal conversation, in order to integrate and balance the physical/mental and existential dimensions of life in the name of excellence in performance and an enriched personal life.

This event is part of the Music and Performing Arts Research Lecture Series.
