Thanks! It really is great to know I'm not weird.

it is always easier to play in front of a friend then it is a teacher, IMO. which might make it easier for you.
He sounds like an awesome teacher!

I agree that playing in front of friends is easier than playing in front of a teacher.

That is true about it easier to play in front of a friend than a teacher. Never thought of that. It's more fun too. What is IMO?
