    So I have been playing trumpet for about 8 years never really had a huge problem buzzing on the mouthpeice. But now it seems that I have to put a huge amount of effort into playing on it. I have been playing a lot more than ussally lately but my tone on the trumpet improved. Am I playing with two different embrochues? Im going to have my teacher check it out when I see him next. Should I be concerened because the last thing I need to to rebuilding new bad habits.

    It could just be a hormone thing that has changed the water level in your body. If you have/had a good daily routine, you can get grounded again by just doing that for a couple of days.

    Hormone have effects on playing trumpet or was that a joke?

    I didn't see a winkie or smilie so it's probably legit. Rowuk rarely jerks peoples chains (at least this early in a thread).

    ..... but later on, you may detect a little leg tugging, you have to watch really closely though. ;-)

    So true. I enjoy the subtlety.

    You don't think he's subtle? :roll: Somebody once compared him to House! Just noticed in the posters signature, they are the girl so maybe it's a cyclical thing. That would make Rowuk right (again)!

    Oh, no, it wasn't that .......... I agree, Rowuk is Mister Subtlety (I think he even won an award for it). It's the hormone thing. I thought that was just something that happened to girlfriends/wives that makes them change radically without notice.:shock: I had NO IDEA it could affect your trumpet playing.

    Well, I'm not a doctor and I don't play one on TV so I'll defer on the true medical reason(s) this could be happening. :lol: Radical as in neck snapping tornado wind force radical?;-)
