Dr Alison Daubney, PhD has recently written to ASME sharing this excellent resource.

Dear Australian Music Educators,

I am writing to you about a new, freely available publication on performance anxiety that was recently published in the U.K. by the Incorporated Society of Musicians, a subject association with around 8,000 members.  I am writing to because I think that it may also be of interest to members in your organisation.
The publication has been co-written with a performance psychologist and brings together our expertise in music education and performance psychology.  As an experienced educator in the U.K. and internationally, I know that performance anxiety is prevalent across music education within and beyond schools, and indeed education more generally.  “Performance Anxiety: A practical guide for music teachers” is a 52-page booklet offering simple to use, effective strategies in a variety of musical learning situations.  It was released around 10 days ago and has been very well received internationally.
A link to more information and the publication itself can be found here:
I very much hope that this guide is useful to you and that you feel able to help us share this important work widely.
