The main purpose of this study is to survey the prevalence and the management of music performance anxiety among music learners in Taiwan. The contents can be divided into two parts: the first is to discuss the impact of anxiety on music learners; the other is to discuss anxiety management and prevention measures taken by music learners. The population of interest in this study is music learners aiming for a professional track, regardless of their gender and age. We use questionnaires as our research tool, and 168 effective samples are collected. The results of this research are as followed: 42% of subjects feel terribly beset of performance anxiety. Variables such the instrument majors, length of study, and gender are all found to affect anxiety impacts. That is to say, those who major in different kinds of instrument have distinct symptoms of anxiety. We have also found that anxiety level arises since from few days before performance, and lasts until the moment when the performance is over. Anxiety peaks often occur when the subjects are preparing on the back stage. Many of them indicated when they engage in performing music, it is the moment that they will forget the anxiety. As for the management and prevention of anxiety, 76% of the subjects had heard about some professional treatments, and 79% of subjects are willing to some of the treatments a try.
