I don't understand why this happens, and it even happens at my lesson. We had our little musical soiree and it was a blast. Keyboard piano. Bongo drum,violin,mandolin .cello,grand piano. But I get so nervous playing in front of even friends.I can stand
in front of 300 people and speak in public. I can run marathons. I can travel by myself to foreign countries. I get frozen playing my violin when someone is listening. I get flustered when my teacher pays me a compliment. Criticism ,I accept more fully. It
must go back to my childhood. I didn't get a lot of compliments. Is it to late to blame my Mother.
