100 things to do before I die: #6

#6: Perform for an audience

The only people who hear me play piano 'live' are my siblings and parents when I'm practising at home.  I'd like to perform for a small audience one day, be it family or friends.  The idea terrifies me though, as I'm only a beginner and make a LOT of mistakes while playing.  It usually takes several recordings to get one that's decent enough to post on facebook.  I'm not scared of having an audience, I'm scared of not playing perfectly.  Music requires 'perfection' and does not really tolerate mistakes.  Because hitting a wrong note is literally an ear sore.
