horror stories

May 6, 2017

So if you're anything like me, you probably get REALLY nervous when it comes to festivals, exams, or even recitals. So there was this one time last year when I was doing my RCM Level 10 piano exam. I was playing the Prelude and Fugue in D Minor from Bach's The Well Tempered Clavier 2, and literally TWO LINES before the end of the fugue, I COMPLETELY forgot what my left hand was supposed to do and I just crashed right then and there. And the examiner was just sitting there staring at me waiting for me to do something, but my mind was COMPLETELY blank and I just sat there panicking. The examiner had to show me the music.

I passed my exam though.

So if any of you have similar horror stories (doesn't matter what instrument) to share please post them on here. It'll be good to know I'm not the only one who screws up like this. Thanks!!
