Mastery of the trumpet, cornet, trombone, tuba or French horn places unique physical demands on the player. We not only play the instrument, we are a part of the instrument. This means that the successful brass player must possess more than just musical talent. The degree of facial muscle strength and stamina required in brass playing makes it a type of unique "athletic" endeavor. Producing sound by vibrating our lip as a type of musical "reed" is not only challenging, it is sometimes punishing. The result can be discomfort, swelling, fatigue, stiffness, and on rare occasions permanent injury that limits our capacity for musical expression.
