Various treatments of Music Performance Anxiety (MPA) have already been researched extensively. However, there are few resources readily available to aid musicians with treating their unique form of MPA in a practical way. The goal of this paper is to examine the work of various psychologists, performers, and educators in order to form a cohesive characterization of MPA, explore its possible causes, resultant mental or physical limitations, and develop practical strategies that aid the performer in coping with this problem. This report will look at some of the possible effects of Music Performance Anxiety and provide practical solutions for the reader.
