Hi, Has anyone ever had songs that you play effortlessly when at home but somewhat struggle with during performances? Well I have. After my last performance this semester I discovered my problem. My lips and my body tense up when I play (Especially whenever the band stands up to play the star spangled banner before the start of basketball games). I'm just so afraid to mess up, even during practice. I now realize that this tenseness kills my endurance and makes it more difficult for me to get out certain notes. Anyone has any suggestions on how to relax during performances?
