Abstract

The characteristics of the activities that fall under the economic sector of music show a huge variety of places, schedules and work conditions, in addition to the informality of work contracts for a vast majority of musicians. Obviously, these factors interfere with the activity of preparation for music performance, with study habits, and most likely with public performance. In spite of that, the attention given to research and intervention regarding this category of workers is clearly scarce and there is not enough research to investigate the various aspects linked to performing music activities -- training, teaching and study practices, professional performance. Laboreal makes room for papers interested in the musicians’ activity, and invites researchers involved in these issues to contribute to the publication of this number.

 

Announcement

Call for proposals for the December 2023 issue

Argument

Artistic activity is one of the most refined expressions of human beings. It is also a fundamental resource for individual and social development. Among the several arts, the music sector stands out for its significance in job creation, as it is one of the main employers for the young population. 

The characteristics of the activities that fall under the economic sector of music show a huge variety of places, schedules and work conditions, in addition to the informality of work contracts for a vast majority of musicians. The lack of regular income sometimes determines a double professional practice, in sector-related jobs or not. Obviously, these factors interfere with the activity of preparation for music performance, with study habits, and most likely with public performance.

In spite of that, the attention given to research and intervention regarding this category of workers is clearly scarce. Studies from an epidemiological nature, especially among classical musicians that are enrolled in formal education, indicate an infinity of physical and mental complaints. Such studies contribute to better understanding health issues related to work, their causes and treatments, but there is not enough research to investigate the various aspects linked to performing music activities -- training, teaching and study practices, professional performance.

Laboreal makes room for papers interested in the musicians’ activity, and invites researchers involved in these issues to contribute to the publication of this number.

The papers will be published in one of the journal’s two languages (Spanish or Portuguese). However, the proposals, as well as the texts submitted for assessment, may be written in French or in English. The authors will then be responsible for the translation into Spanish or Portuguese, considering the outcome of the appraisals.
