Music performance anxiety (MPA) is one of the most frequently reported problems among music students and professional musicians. It can potentially cause severe performance impairment and distress. Possible contributing characteristics are low musical self-efficacy, low self-esteem, inadequate preparation and previous performing experiences.

Music Performance Anxiety and Its Prevention in the Education System
Stevanović, Ena ; KRAJNÝ, Boris (advisor) ; KLÁNSKÝ, Ivan (referee)
Music Performance Anxiety (MPA) is a specific type of anxiety that appears in musicians when they are called to perform in front of others. Mayor causes of MPA are competitive nature of this profession, desire to reach perfection in interpretation, presence of critics and the audience and strong need to control those mental functions that are affected the most by stage fright (such as memory, concentration and muscle coordination). Many authors believe that cognitive factors are the most important for explaination of MPA, especially negative automatic thoughts that appear shortly before the performance. Those dysfunctional thoughts are deforming reality. They are emotionally disturbing and they are affecting performance artistic value. The most effective solutions for this problem are psychological treatment and counceling (identification of emotions and thoughts) and short-term and long-term practicing organization. Education system emphasizes importance of correct ways of memorizing and development of notions and music conception.
