The most important thing at this point is that you are enjoying practising and playing.  At least some parts of your first performance were fun and positive.  Confidence and feeling more at ease will build over time.  All you have to do is keep going and let your confidence build right along with your skill. 

Sure, folks here will be happy to see as you get confident enough to be a bit more visible.  Just like your family will, and for the some of the very same reasons.  We know how hard you work on learning to make the music sound beautiful, and we are proud of you. 

There also may come a day when your teacher will tell you that she would like you to stand a bit more to the front.  When that happens, try to listen to and trust her and do as she recommends just like you would with where to have your left thumb or your right elbow. 

You are doing great.thumbs-up

I think you did a great job and from what I can see of you I also think you look fine. I hear you about the diet/exercise program. I avoid cameras for the same reason - headshots only if that- but I think it takes even more guts to get up there with a group of young people and play than anything else. Way to go clapclapclapand keep playing!
