Author Dianna T. Kennyabout this book: The music industry is now big business. We seem to have lost the goal of participation, enjoyment and aesthetic appreciation that were the goal of musical performance in the era before TV, mass media, social media and endless competitions. People would gather in salons or private homes to hear music. You did not have to be a virtuoso to get a gig. Now you do... The result is a massive increase in the experience of performance anxiety that has been observed in pre-school children and international stars alike. This book attempts to provide an antidote for those parents and teachers who prematurely thrust their young children into spotlights for which they are not ready. The comprehensive book covers all aspects of performance anxiety, including theories, research, treatments and interviews with musicians themselves. A must have on the shelves of all music schools, music teacher studios, advanced students of music and parents with children wanting to pursue a career in music.
