Hi Manny I am 66 years old and trying very hard to get to a point where I can enjoy playing my horn after 30 years off. You have been very helpful in answering my previous questions and I am really progressing. I have two questions: 1) When I play relaxed and in the middle register, I tend to leak air and saliva from the left side of my mouthpiece. I can concentrate and stop this from happening but not without tightening up and playing sharp. Advice please. 2) I play in a concert band that plays only film score music. Last night we tried our hand at Parade of the Charioteers from Ben Hur. It doesn't stop. 98 bars of forte or more. I am on the third part and I just can't last. By bar 55 I have a's and b's above the staff and there is nothing left. Again, any suggestion would be welcome for me as well as our entire trumpet section. Thanks Manny for all you help.
