Musicians’ Well-being Survey


Simone Willis, PHD Researcher in Musicians stress and wellbeing-

I am conducting an online survey with professional and conservatoire classical musicians about the workplace stressors musicians encounter, coping behaviours and the impact on well-being. Our research is intended to inform recommendations for well-being policies in the classical music industry. We will also show the work at academic and industry conferences. We are happy to share their findings with you after the completion of the study.

The survey only takes 15-20 minutes and the project has received ethical approval. It is currently live and will be until 8th December. Musicians will be invited to complete it once now and again next year (May/June). All responses to the questionnaire will remain anonymous. To find out more about the project, please see our blog about the impact of occupational stress on classical musicians. Research from this project has also been published in the peer-reviewed journal, Frontiers in Psychology
