Objective: To gain insight into the prevalence and characteristics of physical health problems and mental health problems in first-, second- and third-year conservatoire students of the classical music department. Also, differences in mental health and general health were investigated between students with playing-related musculoskeletal disorders (PRMDs) and students without PRMDs.
Conclusion: The burden of PRMD complaints in this population of conservatoire students seems relatively low. However, the number of students facing mental problems in this population is a cause for concern. Conservatoires should focus on the subject of mental health in their curricula to increase more awareness and prevent mental problems. To investigate possible causality between PRMDs and general health, prospective studies are needed.

Throughout our fifty years of delivering innovative, relevant education, we have constantly evolved our offering to keep up with the changing demands of the industry. Leeds Conservatoire is the largest conservatoire in the UK and offers a broad selection of music and drama disciplines to choose from, including brand new degrees in Acting and Actor Musician. With a flexible approach to modes of study, you can find the right course for your needs.
We focus on providing industry-relevant education and 97% of our students are in full time work or study within six months of graduating from the conservatoire, with around 80% working in the creative industries (DHLE 2017). We put this down to the incredible hard work and dedication of our students combined with the professional practice, performance opportunities and creative networks that they have accessed when studying at Leeds Conservatoire.
The design of the Global Conservatoire means that students from the RCM and other conservatoires involved can pick from a diverse range of modules and work at their own pace, even across three different time zones. Students can learn from a global classroom and develop their international networks with students from other conservatoires, without having to leave their home institutions.
Yet so often, not least in higher education contexts, performing arts practices remain cloistered, doing little to help the cause of connectedness. Traditionally, practices of specialist education/training in the performing arts (and perhaps particularly in the focused environments of standalone conservatoires, drama and dance academies) have played out in relative isolation. Concentrating on the craft of an individual discipline, they have been less inclined to make connections across boundaries. In addition, those teaching have typically worked alone behind closed doors, often having inherited a powerful hierarchy underpinning the transmission of a craft from master to students. There have been relatively few opportunities for such teachers to engage in shared reflection and exchange. 781b155fdc
