A short time ago I was playing a gig almost every night and it was loud, high and fast. At times I found myself grabbing the music stand so that I would not fall. I felt like I was fainting.
I went to a lung doctor and described to him what was happening. He said, “Of course, what do you expect? You’re suffering from VM.” Then he told me about VM.
Every profession seems to have its hazards and VM seems to be the hazard for trumpet players. I am sure that you as a trumpet salesman do not want to heard this but it is true.
