“How nervous were you to perform solo, if at all? What helped you over come the nerves and give it your best?”

 “Before the performance, I was nervous about having to do a solo. It seemed really nerve-racking to have to stand on stage by yourself. However, as I played the piece, I focused on the music; making sure that there was vibrato, the intonation was correct. I suppose by doing that it helped me forget that there was an audience, and made the nerves go away.”
