Your membership gives you the opportunity to register your interest in the upcoming meetings.

Musikcentrum Väst Ny (MCNY): Start the year with Coaching meetings in collaboration with Open Stage & Mind and Sensus 🎤🎶

The spring meetings focus on various exercises where we discuss challenges related to motivation, mental and physical preparation before concerts, management of thoughts and feelings after concerts, simulation and communication on stage with the audience, as well as management of performance anxiety and stress, etc.

 


(I.e.
Start-up meeting | January 11 | 18:00-19:00 – (digital)

During this meeting, Musikcentrum Väst will introduce and discuss an action plan that will be sent out on 8/1 to all members within MCNY. This enables an interactive session where members have the opportunity to ask questions and together we go through the content of the action plan.

(I.e.Hit #1: Motivate more | January 16 | 18:00-20:30 (Census premises)

About how you set goals and create motivation for your work using various tools and exercises. You get tips on what to do when motivation is lacking. An interactive meeting that also teaches you more about the brain and its connection to the body. 

 

(I.e.Hit #2: Visualizations | February 21 | 18:00-20:30 (Census premises)

About, like athletes, listening and going in mentally before upcoming assignments (concerts). We engage the senses through various exercises. How to better prepare for concerts and for the emotions that arise. And how you deal with feelings and thoughts afterwards. 

 

(I.e.Hit #3: Simulations | March 12 | 18:00-20:30 (Census premises)

About communication on stage as a musician and artist. What signals are we sending to ourselves, our colleagues and the audience? We address performance anxiety, communication, nervousness, stress, etc. An interactive meeting where we simulate a performance. 

 

(I.e.Hit #4: Mind and Body | April 9 | 18:00-20:30 – Mind and body (Sensus premises)

About how everything is connected. You get to experience grounding, stability and freedom in your body. And work with the brain's influence on the body. We boost ourselves with functional thoughts. 

RSVP to mcv@mcv.se no later than 2 days before the first meeting on January 16 to register for all spring meetings. We would love for you to participate in all of them, as they are connected to each other (if you can only attend 2-3 meetings, that's ok).

Music Center West Ny

Musikcentrum Väst Ny is a member category of the non-profit association Musikcentrum Väst (MCV). The membership is personal (not for an entire band) and is for you who invest in becoming a musician or artist, but may currently be studying music or have the ambition to eventually become a *professional musician. 

Membership is a way to be part of MCV's large network of freelance professional musicians, come to our member meetings and certain continuing educations, and receive our mailings with all possible aggregated information that is relevant to you who want to work as a musician. We will also be there as a resource for you to brainstorm thoughts and ideas via coaching conversations. You will not appear on our website or be part of our mediation as a member of Musikcentrum Väst Ny, because a different application is required and you must be able to be said to be a *professional musician to apply. 

*Att being a professional musician/artist means being actively active either part-time or full-time, with the aim of, for example, conducting concerts and performances, touring, recording and releasing music and more — and that the musician/artist profession constitutes all or part of one's income.

What is included in the membership?  

  • You can take part in member meetings on at least 2 occasions per year where you can meet us as well as professional musicians and artists. 
  • You will be able to take part in some further training in the freelance profession as well as e-mails with relevant tips for those who want to work as a musician or artist.
  • We will also be there as a resource for you to brainstorm thoughts and ideas about your musicianship (everything from songwriting to how to book gigs), which means you can book a 45 min coaching session per year

Membership costs SEK 150 per year. If you become a member from/after October, the membership also applies for the coming year.
