This is my first time post so hey to everyone, any way, this is my seconed year playing trumpet and i have been hitting high G's sometimes and high C's with ease. But, about a week or so ago my lips have felt very tired and I have been barley able to hit a C, this has been going on for about a week and it is worrying me. Is this normal? will my lips come back? do I need to stop playing for a couple of days? It worries me because Carolina Crown tryouts are in 5 weeks and i need to be able to do the exercises in the 2009 tryout packet.
