Peripatetic Clinics for Professional Musical Organisations
“The true beauty of music is that it connects people. It carries a message, and we, the musicians, are the messengers”. (Roy Ayers)
We can visit Orchestra's and other professional Music Ensembles in situ! As an employer of musicians, you have certain legal obligations.
Our ears allow us to hear and enjoy music, but if you are a musician, your eyes are just as important. Just like anyone else, you rely on your eyes to read clearly, but you also rely on them to read the music you need or want to play. The effects of visual problems for a musician can be severe. Certain age-related conditions can affect the eyes and have put professional musicians into early retirement.
If you are a musician who is affected by vision problems, try not to worry, our clinical team are experienced in the specific visual needs of the entertainment industry. We are BAPAM registered practitioner, so if you have concerns about your vision or how to improve it please give us a call on 01484 907090 or contact us. We are here to help you.
Presbyopia is a condition which affects a person’s ability to focus at closer working distances and this can get in the way of musicians ability to work and see properly. It is caused by a loss of elasticity of the eye’s crystalline lenses. Presbyopia can mean that while musicians focus on a music stand they may find difficulty in being able to see the conductor. As a result, it forces many people to try to find some less than effective solutions, or retire from playing professionally altogether.
