If you have contact with any healthcare practitioners who work in York or surrounding areas and who has proven to be helpful when working with musicians it would be valuable to establish contact with them. If you would like to forward contact details for relevant individuals or organisations please ask their permission first then contact Naomi with relevant information (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Music Education Works is an accessible webpage that compiles information about the benefits of music education.
Advice, guidance, research and support relating to Covid-19 is fast changing, and it is challenging to keep up with developments. There is also currently an absence of peer-reviewed published texts focusing on the effects of Covid-19 on musicians’ health and wellness, though those are likely to follow as research projects are finished and submitted for publication.
In this section we have gathered together some of the resources relating to Covid-19 that may be of interest, but are aware that there may be many more. If you know of useful resources that could be added to this list, please contact Naomi (email@example.com).
