Nutrition for Musicians
Feel Great – Play Great
Performing and practicing can be taxing on the body.
Musicians put their body, mind and soul into the music they perform, whether through daily practice or stage performance. Rigorous physical demands like long hours of practice, maintaining the same posture for hours, performance anxiety and touring/road travel can place a significant amount of stress on the body.
Nutrition for Musicians is my specially-created course for musicians of all genres to help themselves improve energy, increase oxygen to working muscles and improve body mechanics all through adequate nutrients from food and fluids to help with essential growth and repair from everyday playing, stress, and travel. The valuable information in my course will help you prevent fatigue, inflammation and soreness. It will ultimately keep you playing longer.
By knowing what variety and how much to consume of all nutrients, phytochemicals (natural plant chemicals) and antioxidants, you will not only improve energy, but you will help yourself to prevent disease, slow your aging process. My course teaches all of this and much more.
Stay Healthy and Energized
Nutrition for Musicians is a specialty niche that has taken me four years to develop through a combination of my sports nutrition expertise and background in both the performing arts and exercise physiology, along with interviewing and working with several musicians and vocalists while providing nutrition education to them. All of this has given me the ability to better understand the energy demands of musicians, their schedules, and the nutritional impact it can have on one’s body.
Musicians and vocalists have special nutrition and hydration requirements related to their activity levels and schedules that increase energy requirements. Road touring and late night demands can deplete a musician’s stamina. Singers, in particular, often require certain nutrients while eliminating other nutrients to reach the volume levels they need, and to help keep their vocal cords clear and strong.
Whether you are a classical musician, blues, country, rock, jazz, opera or other genre, musicians and vocalists, in general, all have unique and particular body mechanics that are used while performing. I understand the effects of how nutrition and hydration can impact an individual performer both physically and mentally, and how nutrients play a key role in inflammation, preserving lean body mass, and prevention of overuse of muscle, joints, and injury, as well as the importance of timing for energy, or gastrointestinal tolerance of food pre and post-performance.
I am happy to be able to provide this unique specialty niche and support to musical artists. It is my goal to help musicians obtain their optimal energy level of performance through balanced nutrition.
For musicians looking for individual guidance, I now offer Tele-Health HIPPA compliant confidential video conferencing and chat sessions, or phone consultations where I can take a look at your individual diet, medical needs and history, lab data (when provided), and food preferences along with calculating your individual nutrient needs. Within the first session, you will learn what you require, and how to make changes to meet realistic goals. Following an initial consultation, I produce a nutrition database analysis on our second session based on your actual food intake assessing over 120 nutrients that include vitamins and minerals along with your intake of calories, carbohydrates, protein, fats, and fluids. I take a look at the whole picture for health, weight, and wellness to ensure and educate you on how to consume nutrients and antioxidants naturally to prevent inflammation and illness, and I also educate you on any medication interactions or supplements you may be taking based on scientific evidence.

Overlooking nutrition as a musician is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. The effects of nutrition and poor hydration can impact you both physically and mentally, and key nutrients play a key role. Nutrition for Musicians is specifically designed to help musicians maintain and advance their careers.
This course will help performers at all levels to understand both the impact nutrition and hydration has on the body and mind, as well as the science behind it. This program teaches you about all the essential nutrients, and how to improve energy, strength, and prevent soreness for improved performances and recovery night after night.
In this program, you will have access to quick fixes for digestive issues that may have prohibited you from performing well in the past. I’ve made changes as simple as, changing the type of fiber a performer eats pre-show and have seen incredible results come performance time. Simple and easy pre-show or performance foods not only provide energy but help you to think more clearly leading to better reflex timing. And post-performance re-fueling food will help maintain your talents by preventing inflammation, muscle, and joint soreness.
Nutrition for Musicians is more than a nutrition class, it provides expert advice and education on all nutrient requirements, and specifically tailored for performers to keep you playing longer and more importantly help you reach your full potential.
