The first research was an exploratory mixed-method study specifically for singers at the University of Leeds who took part in an 8-week Mindfulness for Singers (MfS) course. Read all about the MfS course using the links above.

The second research was a 2-year exploratory study utilising a variety of instrumental and singing students at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama who took part in one of four 8-week MBSR/MBCT courses adapted to music students.

The third research was a more rigorous, exploratory replication study of the first MfS research but this time utilising singers from the University of Leeds and Leeds College of Music (now Leeds Conservatoire) who took part in Mindfulness for Singers courses over 2-years. The research design was pretty rigorous so hopefully it’s some good research.
