 Re: Avoiding embouchure collapse?

It is odd - I practice about 1 1/2 hours every day ( i cannot do more now because of rheumatoid arthritis), and I have some days where this happens too - it happens quite unpredictably, and on those days I rest the lips quite a lot, concentrate on air support and abdominal muscles and often the next day, no problems at all. Make sure you warm your lips up well before you start. Before playing I make an embouchure and flex my lips to a smile many times before I start playing, and this preparation often helps. Sometimes when you arrive at a lesson or a rehearsal, you can be in such a hurry to start, that you forget to do this.
