I am a graduate from the Royal College of Music and am currently a PhD/MPhil candidate at the University of Central Lancashire. I am researching musicians' experiences of performance-related challenges, their coping behaviours and what kind of help they might want for certain issues.

For this project I have developed a short anonymous online survey to collect responses from adult musicians who graduated from conservatoire 5 years ago, or less. You will be asked about how prepared you feel for the profession by rating yourself on several skills and how important you find them. The survey should take about 10 minutes to complete.  It has been approved by the UClan Research Ethics Committee for Business, Arts, Humanities, and Social Science (BAHSS).

If you would like to complete the anonymous survey, please follow this link:

If you have any further questions about the research, feel free to contact me at

Thank you for considering participating in my research!
