    Anxiety.

    I've played violin for over 11 years now. Always loved it, but a few years in, felt that everyone expected me to be perfect. I could hear when a note played was a fraction of a tone off, and would just stop playing cause I thought it sounded awful. That led to the development...

    Don't bother asking me

    Gig Musician

    I am a musician who plays at weddings usually on the weekends.  I enjoy my job as a violinist so much that sometimes I feel guilty being paid to do something so enjoyable.
