I hate it.
No matter how well prepared I am or how many bananas I eat, I'm still a nervous wreck when it comes to playing solo in front of an audience.
Attention seeker, I am not. In fact, I detest being under the spotlight immensely. I cannot possibly explain how much it torments me both mentally and physically.
My fingers freeze up, my heart starts beating faster, I break out in cold sweat, my stomach churns, my eyes lose focus, my head starts spinning...
No, I am NOT exaggerating.
This is how bad it is: I'm ALREADY breaking out in cold sweat, and my audition is not for another TWO hours!
Now WHAT, am I going to be like before I enter the audition venue, I dare not imagine. But since I've played through the repertoire a few times today, it doesn't look like I will completely screw it up. However, I'm hoping that my fingers will go on autopilot if all else fails.
Wish me luck, cause I'll need it.
