musicians with MS

I'm looking for professional musicians suffering from MS:

I'll be conducting interviews over the coming months for an article and presentation with musicians (instrumentalists and singers) who have "non-playing-related musculoskeletal disorders", that means an illness (for example: MS, Parkinson's, auto-immune or ataxic disorder, stroke, etc.) that affects their ability control their movements, hence their ability to continue playing (or singing). I'd be grateful for leads.

  • I'm a professional musician with MS.

  • Hi Rierie, I'll be conducting a qualitative research study on musicians with so-called "non-playing-related musculoskeletal disorder", meaning dysfunction that didn't arise from misuse or overuse at the instrument, but from another health issue (neurodegenerative disease, auto-immune disease, stroke, etc.) I'm looking for people to participate in a survey. If you're interested, please let me know. In the meantime, I've set up a FB page to start a dialog on this: Feel free to join.

  • Sure. Let me know.

  • I want to genuinely and sincerely wish you all the best of luck with your project! :)

  • Thanks so much!

  • Hello, the research survey is now online: I'd be very grateful for your participation. All the best, Heather
