: I just got braces and a new double horn. If anyone has tips on how to play a brass instument with braces, PLEASE share with me. Im desprerate.
I also have braces and play the double horn. You will eventually get used to it, but to prevent a lot of pain, you can: a) tell your orthodontist that you play a brass instrument, he/she may have a rubber dealy that snaps onto your braces or b)go to a gas station and buy some cigarette paper, cut it in half and fold it a bunch , moisten it, and stick it on your your braces where they cut into your lip
Also, don't use the wax they give you, it will fall off and get into your rotary valves, you can make your own ending to that story. Best of luck, don't get discouraged.
