A survey questionnaire (Jun 2010) had been distributed directly to the music students in various places in the university to getting know the current situation of anxiety, then a meditation treatment were conducted which takes times of five weeks followed by interview on selective respondents in the faculty based on their belief in ability to change, responsibility, and attitude toward this technique since this can influence the treatment outcome (Smith, 1976: Benson, 1978: Franks, 1963).
