I am a come-back player.
I am (mostly) retired and have plenty time to practice. Currently I am in the mode of lots of practice but by necessity, resting as much as, or sometimes even more than, I play.
But of course I am also impatient. So in-between the trumpet practice sessions I am going to practice a flute. I just ordered a student model (on the cheap). It should get here early next week.
So here is my question: Has any of you ever done this and if so, did the flute playing effect your trumpet embouchure in a negative or positive sense; or did it even matter?
In my amateur way of thinking I concluded that the shape of the chops is so different between the horn and the flute that is should really not have any negative impact.
Notice though that I said “amateur”.
I would love to hear some feedback on this by those that have actually tried it.
