Richard Spencer Performance nerves (54* d) RE: Performance nerves 09 Aug 09

I take the point about some nervous tension helping the performance, but if you get to the stage when you can scarcely breathe you are not going to get a song out effectively. I have been afflicted by this regularly, but far from always, over my 35 years singing folk in public - and it is not easy to deal with. Experience in my case certainly did not help. At times I have completely given up singing, and I hate that. Sarah Morgan does an excellent workshop on overcoming nerves - I strongly recommend this if you get the chance.
Hope you find an answer
