A new coaching service is aiming to help musicians and people in the music industry who are living with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It has been launched by Tristan Hunt, who stepped down from his role as regional manager at the Association for Electronic Music (AFEM) to focus on coaching, including the new service.
Hunt has ADHD himself, and has a long history of working on and talking about mental health and wellbeing in the music industry. “I spent most of my twenty-year music industry career not knowing I had ADHD. So I know first-hand the struggles that artists and my industry colleagues face when working in the music business with the condition – both pre- and post-ADHD diagnosis,” he said.
Hunt already counts Ditto Management, Infectious PR and Asa Bakoo Festival among his coaching clients, and is hoping that musicians and industry workers who have (or who think they might have) ADHD will see the appeal in his new service.
