(p.285) Chapter 10 Prevention and pedagogy
The Psychology of Music Performance Anxiety

Dianna T. Kenny

Oxford University Press

This final chapter is devoted to some thoughts about the prevention of severe forms of music performance anxiety and the psychological aspects that need to be attended to in the raising and pedagogy of gifted music students. We face many challenges throughout life by virtue of being human in a complex world; those challenges are best negotiated by those who have secure attachments and have developed the resilience to confront obstacles with maturity and equanimity, including their music performance anxiety. Parenting and teaching the musically gifted child is first discussed. This is followed by a section on that most dreaded of all events in a musician's life — the audition — for which careful physical and psychological preparation is required. The chapter concludes with excerpts from an interview with Stephanie McCallum, concert pianist and piano pedagogue at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Sydney, Australia.
