I don't normally play the euphonium, but occasionally I will sit in with my class and play chorales. I've been playing a lot for the past week or so filling in on some "King" marches. I play a Besson with a bass trombone mouthpiece 'cause it's more comfortable.
Today I sit down to practice on my tuba, and I've got pain in my lower lip almost like a bruise. Is there anything I can do to avoid this, or are tubists just not meant to play euph?
Please help. Thanks
