Quick Note

So, I'm working at a summer camp, June through August. On our application they asked if we played a musical instrument. I play the flute, so I marked yes, not even thinking about the fact that I haven't played since before my surgery. When they sent me all my paperwork, it said to bring my musical instrument with me in June.
Now that I'm home I decided to pull out my flute and see how everything feels...it is so much different playing with a normal bite! I played for so many years with an underbite, it feels strange to play with my new bite. I had to play simple melodies over and over again, trying to get the notes right: even though my fingers were correct, I was out of tune! My chin and lower lip being numb is really not helping either, after 10 minutes it was really hurting, so I had to stop.

That's all for now, but I'll post pictures later this week or early next week, since I haven't posted any in awhile.

  1. Oh my gosh, I am so there! I teach band and orchestra - and since jaw surgery, it's been an odd transition about how different it is for each instrument.
