I feel like people are staring at me? Every time that i'm in band class, i feel like people are staring at me and i get really tensed up and shake. I don't know what this could be.

Be frank, tell your band teacher how tensed up you get. Ask your band teacher how you are doing. If your band teacher gives you feed back that you are performing well, this tells you that alot of your anxiety is coming from inside you. If your band teacher points out any areas of weakness, you can use that information to work harder in those areas. I think it was great (and showed courage) that you wrote in with this question. ...Read more
