UPDATE: The finalised programme for the day is now online. Click here to view/download it.

Liz Johnson would like some practitioners to bring in their instruments for her afternoon Soundbeam session, so if you play an instrument and it’s easy to carry, please do join in!

That BVSC venue that is hosting the day will direct everyone to our room on the day and please simply ask for BAPAM at reception.

To book your place at the next BAPAM Performing Arts Medicine Training Day please return this response form to Sanchita Farruque at the BAPAM office. The price is just £65 (£45 for students). BAPAM training days may be used as part of your CPD portfolio.

BAPAM’s Birmingham Training Day on Saturday 14th May runs from 9.30am to 5pm and will have three core strands:

  • The Conservatoire – focusing on student problems and training, rehab after injury etc
  • The CBSO – focusing on the orchestral musician
  • The Birmingham Royal Ballet- focusing on dance issues

Programme and speakers are being finalised by the Birmingham BAPAM team, made up of Dr Jonathan White and Karen O’Connor. We’ll be covering subjects like:

  • Performance Coaching, the Bach to Sport project at the Birmingham Conservatoire, and other student/tutor related issues
  • Nutrition & Fitness and the Female Athlete Triad
  • Case presentations of some unusual problems e.g. trumpet player with rare embouchure problem, amateur wind player with a Handelian condition, and a pop musician with a neurological event

The Training Day will take place at BVSC, The Centre for Voluntary Action in the Digbeth area of Birmingham.
