I'm think I am lucky in that I dont get nervous, however loads of the kids i conduct suffer really badly. I was just wondering what everyone was like while waiting in the registration room or before they go on stage for a big solo. You read of sportsmen with rituals before they compete and I wondered if anyone here had something similar. A good friend of mine once said they ate bananas to relax, that was live on tv before the BBC young musican semi final!!! Lived to regret that.
