    I find it hard to play for people but am trying to get over it by playing for my husband and friends occasionally. I have found that my practice can be flawless but the minute I try to play for someone it all goes out the window and I get so nervous that I mess up. So that makes me even more reluctant to play for people. Do you have any suggestions for making it easier to get past the nervousness??

    I haven’t had a problem playing for others because I am so concentrated on what I am doing, I believe I kind of forget about the audience.

    I wish I could play in front of others. Not much chance to do it. Maybe my husband will be an audience tomorrow?

    I have problems even playing for my teacher…! I wish I could sound at the class like I sound practicing alone… 🙁

    Yes. I want to have my intonation back more like it used to be! I’m working on it.

    I am still working on playing in front of others. I figure if i can keep at it I might get better. Also like HDuaneaz said above I might try concentrating on what I am doing so I can forget there are people listening.

    I’m terrified of playing in front of others. I’m hoping that will get better as I improve.

    I know I was too when I first started but as I play more in front of people it gets easier. Keep at it.

    I really prefer to enjoy playing by myself but hope to be able to again enjoy playing with others. Not sure I ever want to do solo performance, even casual, but with no pressure one never knows what might happen.
