So, I am doing quite a bit of research right now about performance anxiety among musicians and I read a chapter in a fairly noteworthy book today describing performance anxiety as a type of social phobia, i.e., the fear of public humiliation. This makes sense to me logically although I had not thought of it in those terms before. I will have to think about the implications of this further.
