Musicians have the most wonderful profession; they have the opportunity to create music as an art form for a vibrant audience. However, being trained and working as a musician, also means confronting one’s physical, mental, and existential wellbeing. This presentation addresses time limited individual Guided Imagery and Music with professional musicians: exploring music listening as a health resource. I propose an open music listening approach, supported by drawings and verbal conversation, in order to integrate and balance the physical/mental and existential dimensions of life in the name of excellence in performance and an enriched personal life.
