    hi everybody...
    i'd like to know if someone else has the same endurance problems that seem to affect me...
    generally i play for 3-4 hours a day...at the end of my session i still can play in my high register, but only if i play technical exercises (to let you understand: H.L. Clarke "style")...
    But only after one hour of playing long studies (Brandt "style" for example) i'm completely lips-tired and i cannot arrive to the end of the study...does it happen to everyone or it's just my problem?is there some way to solve this problem?

    thanx

    The best way to solve the problem is to not let it happen. Divide your practice session into 45 minute parts with at least 20 minutes break in between!. Do not practice your chop builders first, do a light routine then attack music, repertory. After that, technical studies and embouchure builders. NEVER practice music when you are tired. It deserves only the best attention from YOU!
