dc.description.abstract To assess their reported level of performance anxiety, undergraduate voice students were surveyed in varying performance situations. The attempt was made to determine if there was any correlation between anxiety in a performance and anxiety reported in the private lesson. The reported effect of anxiety upon the singers' ability in the private lesson was also observed. Students were given a self-report questionnaire and asked to rate on a Likert scale the frequency of anxiety experienced during differing performance situations as well as private study. They were asked to assess the positive or negative effect of anxiety on their perceived performance ability. Results showed there to be significant difference between the anxiety experience during a performance situation and a private lesson. It was also found that the overall effect of anxiety in the lesson was perceived as being equally positive to some and negative to others. This indicates that the experience of performance anxiety may not be based on the situation of performance but on the individual. Further, to some students it may act as a deterrent to potential performance ability and to others it may actually be a catalyst for better performance ability.
