When I perform, I don't get the typical signs of nervousness, like a racing heartbeat, jitters, etc. The only sign of nervousness that pops up are COLD HANDS, the worst thing for a violinist! Sometimes I blame it on being cold outside, but as soon as I am finished playing, my hands instantly warm up. What can I do to "warm up" my hands naturally so they do not freeze??? Please help me conquer this!
Note: This only happens when I play in "exposed" situations - solos, quartets, but not in orchestras.
