Musicians can face a number of physical and mental issues in their career, and when untreated these can lead to real problems that can affect playing, confidence and the ability to work.

The good news is, the majority of these problems are preventable, but often musicians don’t know how to prevent the issues, or where to go when things go wrong.

This is why we created the Elevate Music Podcast - helping musicians to improve their health and wellbeing, one episode at a time.
