When talking to my students, I often go into detail about how you have a practice and a performance level. Whilst your practice level may be very good at home, performing on stage to an audience is in a completely different ball-park.
As this was David’s first time performing on stage, he learnt the value of these different levels first hand. He had to battle his nerves more than he expected, causing him to be dissapointed with his performance.
We still think he put on a great show considering the difficulty, but David requested that we show a practiced video from home as well as the performance video, in the hopes that it’ll help future performers understand the difference in quality a performance in-front of many people can give.
