Review:

"Notes from the Green Room is a welcome and unique addition to the literature on performance anxiety for both musicians and clinicians. Educational and practical, it will inspire a variety of possible therapeutic approaches." (Alice G. Brandfonbrener, M.D., Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago)

"Drs. Salmon and Meyer are expert psychologists who have explored the roots of performance anxiety (and suggest measures for its alleviation) in a way extremely helpful to both students and accomplished performers who ′nervousness′ prevents them from full realizing their potential on stage or even on less formal occasions." (Robert Parris, professor of music, George Washington University)

"These talented and knowledgeable authors offer musicians a very clear description of the mechanisms involved in performance anxiety and suggest concrete ideas for channeling the negative aspects of anxiety into a positive force. Especially effective are the case histories offering real life examples of musicians dealing with the stresses and strains of performance. This should be required reading for all musicians!" (Gail J. Berenson, professor of piano, chair keyboard division, Ohio University School of Music)

"A superb job? beyond the notably obvious beneficial implications built into this book for musicians, the authors have compiled a thorough and comprehensive treatise which deals with every facet of anxiety and stress management for performers, regardless of their discipline . . . this work should be obligatory reading." (Lee Bash, chair, Department of Fine & Performing Arts, Bellarmine College and director, Kentucky Governor′s School for the Arts)

"Notes from the Green Room is a superb study of musical performance anxiety. Beginning students, seasoned performers, and teachers can all benefit from the practical help it provides. It will certainly become required reading for all my students." (James Kibbie, University of Michigan School of Music)

"Performers, as well as the growing group of professionals treating performance anxiety, should have this important book on their reference shelves." (Alan Grishman, performance anxiety consultant, musician)
