    I have stage fright so bad

    that it's almost impossible for me to sing in front of anyone even my closest friends. I love to sing and I'm not that bad at it according to people that I have gathered enough confidence to sing in front of. I've tried my best to get over my stage fright. I've even done a...

    I only have stage fright

    when I play clarinet. The stage is home to me as an actor so that doesn't bother me. I only freak out and start shaking when I play clarinet. I sit second chair so I'm not sure why I am this way. Oh well, no big deal.

    Stepping up there. Turning around

    and finding dozens of eyes staring back at you. Look, observing, possibly judging. Who knows what thoughts are running through their minds. You stand there, ready to get it over with. You're sweating. Butterflies in your stomach. Shaking. There's a stutter in your voice. You...
