I've played sax off and on for several years, not real consistant though. Now I'm learning the trumpet and while i'm sure there is a logical explanation to my question, I'm not sure what it is?? LOL
Can anyone tell me why my throat gets sore after "blowing my brass" for short periods of time? If I'm more repetitious with it, will I stop having sore throats?
Thanx for any feedback!
peace

This should not be a problem since the breathing process for both instruments are the same. What you may be doing is using the throat to push with. The trumpet embouchure is different and you may be constricting too much in the the throat. Use firmer corners of the lips when playing trumpet. Feel as through your throat is open as you play. Push with the stomach and abdominal muscles, not the throat.

Yah It sometimes is a killer trying to learn trumpet, but after a while it seems so simple. When I started playing trumpet I use to get sore throats as well. But after a while it went away as I prgressed on. Now that I am Learning saxophone my lips hurt, but my throat no longer hurts.

You blog based on music education which might be useful for the people who wanted to learn about music.
