Piano Lessons Update. My piano lessons have been going well. Teacher praises me occassionally. She says my sight reading is good, I learn fast and I’ve got a good feeling for music. Ahem! During my half hour lesson, hubby takes the kids to the park after dropping me at piano school. So they all enjoy themselves too.
IÂ am diligent in my practise because I love it. However, even though I practise hard and sound ok at home, when I get toÂ the class, my fingers stiffen and IÂ make mistakes. I am suffering from Performance Anxiety.
Silly isn’t it? Despite my practise, despite teacher’s praises,Â despite it being an individual class with no one else around, I still feel nervous when playing for the teacher. I don’t feel nervous when playing for myself. In fact, I play with much more feelingÂ too but in class, the feeling disappears in place for a nervous or performance anxiety feeling. Bleargh!Â
