 Stress Velopharyngeal Incompetence
Author: Melissa Anderson

Hi everyone.
I have already posted this on the clarinet forum and have had a good response, but I'm also looking to see how this condition affects other wind muisicans.

I'm doing my degree dissertation on a condition called "Stress Velopharyngeal Incompetence", it is a condition which is not very common but it mostly happens with clarinettists. The condition is basically a palatal air leak whereas, whilst a musican is performing, a leak begins which allows air only to pass through the nose and nothing to come through the mouth, therefore no sound can be produced.

If you could take a few minutes to complete my online questionnaire I would be very grateful and if anyone has experienced this or knows more about the condition, please reply.


Thank you very much.

Go to www.woodwind forum.com/forums/ and look for a post by SOTSDO titled ''I've sprung a leak....'' he talks about this condition and how it has affected his playing.
