Stage fright among musicians and music students is a severe problem, and a problem moreover that is not easily talked about. This researchreport is a reflection of the project Peak Performance & Reducing Stage Fright, in which six students of the Prince Claus Conservatoire got the opportunity to take the HeartMath training. A training developed by de GGZ Heerenveen. The research, which is described in this report, was aimed at the usefulness of this training for professional music students.
