Just had my grade 7 piano exam - really disappointing. Made lots of silly mistakes in my first piece which I started off with. I tend to suffer terribly from nerves to the point of physically shaking, and the frustrating thing is that I KNOW I can play well, but put me in front of an examiner and I just go to mush. It didnt help that I was made to sit the the waiting room for an extra 15 minutes or so because they mistakenly took someone in before me. The other 2 pieces went better but still not perfect. Couldnt do the clapping part of aural either which was awful. Just felt really stupid. Felt like crying afterwards. The steward said it sounded really good from where she was sitting but I know it was awful. Feel pretty gutted.
