This is a really weird thing that has happened to me in the last week or so. I feel like I strained my voice or something. It feels like the back of my tongue is sore or strained. I think this may have been caused by over exertion from doing too much flexibility study (like in the Collin book) or articulation studies. Or both. The longer I play throughout any given day, the more it is sore.

Has this type of thing happened to anyone else?
What can I do about it?

Continues playing per say won't cause the tongue or throat to hurt. You're doing something wrong. Do you have a teacher you can consult? If this persist for more than a week go see a doctor. Something is not right.

Turns out, I have pharyngitis which just about explains everything. I'm on antibiotics now. Should be ok in a few days.

Get well soon! If it's a bacterial infection than your horn is infected. You need to sterilize it. E mail me and I'll send you my trumpet maintenance paper which tells you how to sterilize the horn. If you don't clean you'll just get reinfected.

Bob, that would be great. Thank you.

I just started the antibiotics yesterday and even today things were much better. I had a performance with my school's Frank Zappa ensemble and my playing was at about 75-80% of my ability whereas the last few days may have been around 30-40%.

Sterilizing the trumpet after a pharyngitis
because
a relapse could be caused by trumpet playing - are you sure ?

That's not what I meant at all. Pharyngitis was causin the problems that I thought were caused by strain or overuse. I just didn't know I was sick for a few days. I know that playing didn't cause the illness.

Bacteria infections love to live inside the trumpet. If it's not cleaned and sterilized , playing the horn will re infect you.

hi robert,

from where do you know that a trumpet should be sterilized after pharyngitis to reduce risk of relapse ?

kind regards

peter
