Why is it that well-prepared, talented, hardworking, and intelligent performers find their performance and self-esteem undermined by the fear of memory slips, technique failures, and public humiliation? In Managing Stage Fright: A Guide for Musicians and Music Teachers, author Julie Jaffee Nagel unravels these mysteries, taking the reader on an intensive backstage tour of the anxious performer's emotions to explain why stage fright happens and what performers can do to increase their comfort in the glare of the spotlight. Examining the topic from her interdisciplinary educational, theoretical, clinical, and personal perspectives, Nagel uses the music teacher/student relationship as a model for understanding the performance anxiety that affects musicians and non-musicians alike. Shedding new light on how the performer's emotional life is connected to every other facet of their life, Managing Stage Fright encourages a deeper understanding of anxiety when performing. The guide offers strategies for achieving performance confidence, emphasizing the relevance of mental health in teaching and performing. Through the practices of self-awareness outlined in the book, Nagel demonstrates that it is possible and desirable for teachers to assist students in developing the coping skills and attitudes that will allow them to not feel overwhelmed and powerless when they experience strong anxiety. Each chapter contains insights that help teachers recognize the symptoms-obvious, subtle, and puzzling-of the emotional grip of stage fright, while offering practical guidelines that empower teachers to empower their students. The psychological concepts offered, when added to pedagogical techniques, are invaluable in music performance and in a variety of life situations since, after all, music lessons are life lessons.

"Music performance anxiety is the experience of strong and persistent anxiety related to the performance of music. It is highly prevalent among musicians and can lead to the impairment of performance quality, or the complete abandonment of an individual's study or career. To date, studies examining musicians' coping efforts have not examined the mechanisms that drive adaptive coping responses to manage music performance anxiety. This knowledge is essential before interventions to manage music performance anxiety can be designed and tested. The present research addressed this gap by investigating the role mindfulness played in guiding coping efforts to regulate music performance anxiety in a sample of university music performance students (N = 159). The study was longitudinal and questionnaire-based, and included two new measures designed to assess musicians' coping strategies, as well as measures of mindfulness, music performance anxiety, perceptions of performance quality, and final grade. A Self-Regulation Model of Music Performance Anxiety was developed to test mediational relationships. Results showed that the mindfulness facet act with awareness (expressed in dispositional and situational forms) was associated with lower music performance anxiety. Coping responses of higher hope and lower avoidance partially mediated dispositional act with awareness effects on situational act with awareness. The goal-oriented strategy of hope also contributed to increased practice efforts. During performance, the coping strategies of positive focus, self-kindness, and self-acceptance partially mediated the relationships between levels of situational act with awareness and music performance anxiety. Finally, the relationships between situational act with awareness and performance outcomes were fully mediated by levels of music performance anxiety. These findings lay the foundation for future research to run a randomized control trial to test a mindfulness-based intervention aimed at developing act with awareness and coping strategies, including hope, positive focus, selfacceptance, and less avoidance. Educators and clinicians working to reduce the negative impact of music performance anxiety need to consider how they target music students' ability to bring act with awareness, and the adaptive potential of hope, positive focus, self-acceptance, and less avoidance, to their preparation and performance".

This reference guide is specifically designed to provide teachers with practical, evidence-based strategies for reducing test-related anxiety and improving test performance and overall well-being in students ranging from elementary to high school age.The guide includes recommendations for teaching effective study skills & habits, as well as specific test-taking skills. It also describes how to teach students stress-reduction techniques such as deep breathing, freewriting, progressive muscle relaxation, guided imagery, mindfulness and meditation, and positive self-talk.

Over the past 16 years, new theories and models have emerged in the stress and anxiety knowledge base regarding the unique forms associated with performance. Existing theories have been applied in creative and helpful ways to better explicate relationships between stress and anxiety with performance. Recently, more sophisticated statistical strategies have been applied to data collected with performers, and additional, safe and expedient strategies for managing stress and anxiety have surfaced. Despite these new advances, the field has been lacking an up-to-date and practical text for undergraduate and graduate students in performing or performance-mentoring programs. Managing Performance Stress examines psychological and psychophysiological models and theories that explain causes of anxiety and stress. An easy-to-use reference work for athletes, musicians, dancers and actors as well as those who devise and conduct their training programs, the book presents exercises, coaching devices, and strategies for conquering stress and anxiety. It is an invaluable resource for those who are performers, will be performers, or who are preparing to mentor, coach or teach performers. The principles enunciated in Managing Performance Stress apply equally to the musician holding an oboe and the athlete holding a baseball bat. The issues explored and the theories, principles, models, hypotheses discussed all bear upon and clarify arousal, stress and anxiety related to artistic and sport performance, irrespective of its kind.

What type of practice makes a musician perfect? What sort of child is most likely to succeed on a musical instrument? What practice strategies yield the fastest improvement in skills such as sight-reading, memorization, and intonation? Scientific and psychological research can offer answers to these and other questions that musicians face every day. In The Science and Psychology of Music Performance, Richard Parncutt and Gary McPherson assemble relevant current research findings and make them accessible to musicians and music educators. This book describes new approaches to teaching music, learning music, and making music at all educational and skill levels. Each chapter represents the collaboration between a music researcher (usually a music psychologist) and a performer or music educator. This combination of expertise results in excellent practical advice. Readers will learn, for example, that they are in the majority (57%) if they experience rapid heartbeat before performances; the chapter devoted to performance anxiety will help them decide whether beta-blocker medication, hypnotherapy, or the Alexander Technique of relaxation might alleviate their stage fright. Another chapter outlines a step-by-step method for introducing children to musical notation, firmly based on research in cognitive development. Altogether, the 21 chapters cover the personal, environmental, and acoustical influences that shape the learning and performance of music.
