Commit that solo to memory. Practice it so much you are sick of it, you could do it in your sleep. You don't want to have to think about. It will make your life easier.Thank you I am in high school i have to play a solo
Be ready. Know the material you're performing as best as you can.
Exactly on both. Lack of confidence about parts & solos is the biggest factor in nerves and stagefright for musicians. I have no problem in front of crowds, except when I'm not confident about something. A part, the arrangement, nailing some 16th note kicks, or maybe a jam situation where I have to play a song I don't know, or play a song that I know I won't play like the original.Commit that solo to memory. Practice it so much you are sick of it, you could do it in your sleep. You don't want to have to think about. It will make your life easier.
Public speaking and performance isn't hard if you are prepared.
