So, my lips were swollen after a hard day of practice and jazz band. The next day in band I amazed at the HORRIBLE noises coming out of my horn. My first thought was, "oh boy" there you go, you broke your lips. So decieded to take the weekend off from practicing. Today before school when I was in a practice room the same thing but worse. Now I started to really panic. " Ok. now I have to start all over, get a new embachure, go through painful relearning. Then after looking at the horn parts I reliesed that one of my valves was in backwards or something. I blew through the horn, and to my suprise I could play like normal! Wow, I sure feel stupid. I remember that happened right before a concert once and I didn't get to play in it. Has this or somthing like it happened to anyone else? Or is it just me??
