In two weeks im going to an audition for a music highschool i want to go to next year. I've been thinking about this audition for 3 years now and i have to get in! I'm going to play Confirmation by Charlie Parker, Prelude no 2 by Villa Lobos, and a jazz improvisation.
I've practised alot and i can play the songs flawlessly and improvise good, but my only problem is that I get so awfully nervouse. Even when im playing small gigs infront of like 10 people i get nervouse, I'll play somthing that i know very well but i will mess it up since i get nervouse.
I've played dozens of gigs, and my nevousity only seems to get worse. I've tried everything from eating alot of bananas to running a mile before a gig but nothing seems to stop my nerves from going wild when i play.
I'm so afriad that my nervousness will screw up the audition, i'll probably quit guitar if i don't get into the school ;(
So please, i need some tips from everyone here at IG to help me out. Tell me all about how you guys cope with nervouseness and how you prepare before an audition or a gig.
