Morning, often read the messages, but have only just decided to join. I am currently waiting, not so patiently for my grade 5 theory results and also my grade 3 piano which I took last Saturday. I was just wondering if anyone has any tips for controlling my nerves. Have always suffered during my exams (I am grade 5 Sax and Clarinet) and was recommended the Bach remedy. But after taking what must have amounted to half a bottle in my cup of tea and also sprays on the tongue, I walked into the examination room and completely went to pieces...although well prepared and I ended up as a quivering wreck and came out in tears, not good for a 40 year old women! Help needed please, am seriously thinking of giving up on the lessons.

Don't let the exam experience put you off learning.
You may want to use exans as landmarks in which case you need to work with your teacher on how to manage (Something I'm working on) but exams are not the main thing that music is about. You can choose not to do them and progress equally well..... or even better without the added stess and exam preparation time.
If you want to seek out opportunities to play to others (I don't find this half as stressful as an exam) have a look at the Events board. The Adult learner and forum concerts are more like a friendly get together where we play to one another and it really doesn't matter if things don't go perfectly.
