Then how come after years of lessons, concerts, and auditions you’re just as nervous as ever (if not more so)?
You’re the kind of musician who is willing to work hard. You give it your all on stage and in auditions and you perform regularly.
And yet, in spite of all of your experience, you find yourself struggling to feel confident. Out of nowhere, your nerves take over and all of your hard work seems to go flying down the drain.
