 Double Lip Embouchure Pain
Author: Claire Annette 
Date:   2010-12-22 14:33

About this time last year, after easing my way into using a double-lip embouchure, I started doing double lip exclusively.

This holiday season, I have been playing more "gigs" than usual. As a result, the frenulum, or line of skin that runs from my upper gums to the center inside of my upper lip, has really taken a beating. It seems that this line of skin sits tightly against and in between my two front teeth.

I need some suggestions on how to continue without causing pain each time I play for an extended rehearsal or performance. Without much success, I've tried covering my top front teeth with cigarette paper, floral tape, wax, and a clear plastic retainer-type device my dentist made for me. I'm not willing to give up the DL embouchure because I'm extremely satisfied with my tone.
