    Jaw Trouble

    Lately I have been developing a "pocket of air" near the upper part of my jaw on the right side of my face. I'm not sure what is causing it. Any ideas?

    I recently made some changes to my chops so this may have something to do with it. However, I have retraced the changes I made and the pocket is even there with my old set of chops now.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    On average I pracice about 3 to 4 hours a day. Long tones to start, Clarke studies, sight-reading, lyrical etudes that cover the range of the horn and various solo stuff. After I am done with these things I spend about an hour working on BE. I rest as much as I play and am careful about too much pressure. The bulk of the practice is spent sight-reading. The warm-up is usually about 30 to 45 minutes. This is all done in my basement practice room. :)
