Research into Musicians’ Approaches to Musical Practice

Emese Hruska, a PhD researcher at the University of Roehampton, is recruiting London based musicians to help her look at musicians’ attitudes and experiences towards their musical practice.

This current project is part of her PhD research, and it involves interviewing  musicians regarding their experiences and views about their musicianship , their musical and individual identity. Interviews will take about 1 hour, and can be arranged at a suitable location chosen by the participating musician to express his/her thoughts and feelings freely. Participants must be based in London.

Emese’s long term goal is that the findings will contribute to developments in preventing and/or managing problems related to music performance anxiety and perfectionism in musicians. On completion of the project, Emese intends to equip musicians with adaptable empowerment strategies for strength, persistence, positivity, autonomy etc.

If you are interested in taking part, please contact Emese directly by email: hruskae@roehampton.ac.uk

This project has been approved by the Research Ethics Committee at the University of Roehampton.

The results of the project will be shared with BAPAM, and we’ll report back at a future date.
