Jitters on Stage

Ask Katy

Hi Katy! I play guitar in a local band and I always get these terrible bouts of stage fright before a gig . I was wondering if any of the guys could give me some pointy tips about managing my nerves onstage.Thanks a bunch, Julio Rodriguez, Madrid (Spain)

"Hi Julio, I’ve been lucky not to be plagued by nerves before show tho I do get an adrenaline rush that most performers get before going on stage. I think if you are confident in what you’re doing then there is really nothing to worry about . Audiences are very forgiving even if you make mistakes. I’ve been on stage many times when things have not gone perfectly but they’ve often gone on to be the best shows, so relax and enjoy it! Nick"
