nothing to do with violin playing originally, but it`s great!
`Lance (my college coach) gave me some advice once about being nervous saying "just make your butterflies fly in formation." This is great advice after you figure out what it actually means. `
I interpretted that as having nothing to be nervous about...
Or telling the butterflies to go where they belong.
IMPO, I think it's more along the lines of accept your state of nervousness, and attempt to manage that extra energy for something positive rather than try to ignore it and believe that the nerves have no place. Take the time to communicate with your body (biofeedback) and don't let your emotions overwhelm you
Oh and Buri I just got the meaning of your clever headline ;-)
Just make everything works for you, regardless!
Great catch up title, quite original.
Love it Buri, thank's!
Well it made me think further, what do we really have to be nervous about? Set the ego aside and whats to be nervous about?
If nervous being a peformance anxiety, whats the thought process behind having nerves - is it because we're being judged and we dont like the idea of not knowing immediate response. Or is it making a fool of ourselves?
I know that I get nervous for sounding stupid, so it makes me want to play really impressive.
