I think 'stage fright' is a bit of a misnomer for this, to me it's more 'distracted playing'. Having someone watch or listen means my mind is wondering what they think, when I need all my focus on my playing. A simple solution is to to add distract

I read once on here that you should sit down at your piano for a minute or two, and if the enthusiasm to practice doesn't arrive, shut the lid and go do something else instead. Taking away the pressure that you 'must' practice will stop it becoming a

I think the way to conduct such a test would be to have an acoustic piano and a digital piano in the same room, maybe behind some partition made of material that minimizes loss of sound. The reason is that if you are comparing a recording of a digit
