Julie Jaffee Nagel's new book, Managing Stage Fright: A Guide for Musicians and Music Teachers, is a welcome addition to our understanding of performance anxiety which remains a major problem for musicians at all levels of proficiency. But what is unique about this book is how it illuminates the student/ teacher relationship and the role that music teachers can play in helping students manage their symptoms.
