What makes you uncomfortable? Performing? Certain pieces or excerpts? Certain phrases? A crowded room? Covid-19? Confrontation? We often don’t recognize signs of discomfort, instead, we instinctually react to them. For me, the moment I get distracted as I practice or write is when I decide to check my email, get another glass of water, or realize I need something to eat. I use these tasks to escape the discomfort I am facing. I didn’t even recognize when discomfort arose because my mind is so stealth at getting me out of it before I experience the unpleasant sensations.
