Mental Music is a podcast designed to delve into mental health in the music industry and music education.
As of February 2021, PRXLUDES has partnered with independent podcast Mental Music.
Hi there, my name is Max, and I am the founder of Mental Music!
Mental Music started back in September as my way of creating and maintaining more conversations in and around the topic of mental health and wellbeing for musicians and those like myself in higher music education.
I have had my fair share of experience with mental health, be it anxiety, depression, low mood- I’ve had to do a lot of personal work alongside my studies (often without much support) to get better!
So, to see what I could do to gather more awareness on the issue, I started talking with fellow colleagues of mine, and the answers would always amount to a similar conclusion:
“I wish people talked about it more, that way I wouldn’t have felt so alone and could have gotten help sooner.”
And that is why I started this project! Interviewing musicians who have been through these things, talking through those experiences, what they did that helped, and what they maybe do to help others!
So I hope you enjoy these conversations, and know that if these topics resonate with you, that’s okay! Mental Music is about saying, “It’s not unusual, and you’re not alone”.
If you would like to be a part of Mental Music, and you’re in any way part of the creative arts, please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lots of love,
