Lecture Series, 11th of October 2023, 5 p.m.
ADHD in Musicians
85% - 100% of musicians will experience performance-related health problems during the course of their career. Musculoskeletal injuries and performance anxiety are commonly addressed. However, little research exists on musicians with ADHD and other neurodiverse diagnoses and how they affect musicians' health. This lecture will inform students and educators on the clinical definition of different neurodiverse diagnoses such as ADHD and autism, their characteristics, how they present differently in gender, and how to best cultivate resilient musicians who experience the world differently.
Following this event participants will be able to:
- Recognize the different presentation of neurodiverse tendencies in men vs women
- Understand how to cultivate a supportive environment that helps meets the needs of this unique population of musicians
