Errors in a performance can be due to all kinds of causes(inadequate practice, repetoire too difficult for the ability level, fatigue, lack of concentration or focus, etc.) What should be considered for errors that occur relatively early in a performance(or early in successive pieces in a program)before a performer "settles down?" Are there preparation hints? What about the use of beta blockers or bananas(natural beta blocker?) or other performance "enhancers?"
