    No one can begin to understand what it's like to play and perform in pain or with a dysfunctional embouchure unless he has personally experienced it. Using the muscles of a frown to compress the lips together. John Bennett: 33 years playing lead trumpet in Vegas. With each successive day, the lips fatigue more quickly. I have found that people can put the close setting to real use quicker by learning to relax the chops.

    Your playing has been free and easy—until one day, you pick up the horn, and nothing feels right. Busy playing schedules make for weary embouchure muscles and swollen lip tissue which have to be forced to work with greater mouthpiece pressure, volume, and lip compression. So thanks again for your positive contribution to the brass world. Nothing can adequately describe the emotions which overwhelm a player beleaguered by embouchure pain or a chop problem which won't go away.

    After all, this is Clarinet-Now. You're finding it increasingly difficult to play high notes securely, and you suffer with lip fatigue almost as soon as you pick up the horn. He doesn't realize that his problems are being caused by tired muscles and swollen lip tissue which simply will not perform as well. Give it a good smile. The studio computer will be available to students for listening and play-along purposes. Sleepless nights are followed by every waking hour being devoted to trying to find a solution--an answer.
