We are pleased to introduce the collection Frontiers in Psychology – Highlights in Performance Science: Music Performance Anxiety.

Music performance anxiety (MPA) has been defined as “the experience of marked and persistent anxious apprehension related to musical performance”.

For musicians performing in public is a demanding activity and the MPA can cause potential debilitating effects on their career and health, regardless of age, gender, experience, practicing time, and music genre.

A greater understanding of the predicting factors of MPA has implications not only for theories of MPA but also for its prevention and management and more broadly for teaching and learning.

This collection will welcome and showcase a selection of articles about Music Performance Anxiety (MPA), authored by leaders in the field. ​The work presented here highlights the broad diversity of research performed across the Performance Science field and aims to put a spotlight on the main areas of interest. ​

This collection aims to further support Frontiers’ strong community by shining a spotlight on our authors' highly impactful research. ​

Keywords: Music Performance Anxiety (MPA), Musicians health, performing musicians, musical performance
