    I am a singer, and I know I am good.
    But i get so worked up whenever I perform. I am petrified that people will look at me and think 'she's rubbish'. I care about what people think too much, to the point that I can't enjoy performing at all.

    My voice shakes and my legs shake and i sweat. It's a horrible feeling.

    I have a concert next week, and a lot of my peers are going to be there. i so nervous. Has anyone got any advice?

    Try relaxing techniques like controlled breathing before you go out on stage, also if you have problems performing in front of your peers try and perform in front of them a few days before the concent and see if you can overcome your fears.

    am guessing if you are singing in concert you are a great singer and shouldn't worry about the crowd, they'll love you try the net for relaxation techniques and I hope they work for you

    Beta blocker are good for slowing down heart rates and can help with relaxation the problem is though that your nervousness seems to be more mental because it's your fear of performing in front of your peers.

    How long til your concert now? have you tried any of the techniques to relax and performed in front of your peers?
