Post-Post Performance Mood Responses (PPMR) in Musicians: How Emotional Highs and Lows are Managed Backstage
Between Nov 1 – Dec 13, 2017, Researchers, Paul “Ace” Piva (Over The Bridge), Dr. Nathan Cooper, Nickie Buchok and McMaster University, used social media to invite musicians from around the world to participate in the study survey.
The goal of the PPMR study is to evaluate whether musicians have positive or negative mood responses after performances and identify how the positive or negative mood responses are managed.
In addition, we would like to assess if there are patterns amongst and between musicians based on demographic information, as well as patterns in how they manage their post-performance mood responses.
UPDATE: Feb 29, 2020 Researchers, Paul “Ace” Piva (Over The Bridge), Dr. Nathan Cooper, Nickie Buchok is working with Georgian College to analyze the collected data. Results are expected to be released in Spring/Summer 2021.
