  • How is your embouchure?

    How long did it take to master your embouchure skills?

    You're aware that this is the organ forum? While there might be a few people here who know how to play brass instruments, I don't quite see how this topic fits into "Classic & Church Pipe Organs" where you posted it.

    Maybe someone can move this discussion to a more appropriate forum.

      I was a professional hornist but I'm not going to answer your question because I don't think you are truly interested in the answer and you'd probably argue with me anyway.

      Besides that, I don't think this is an appropriate topic for the organ forum. Yes, there is a general chat area, but generally speaking it is for topics that are at least tangentially a propos to organs or organ music.

      Sorry, Michael. I left off the diacritical mark on a propos!

        Don't worry about that! I generally reserve that criticism for people who ignorantly start multiple threads.

        I've moved this thread into General Chat (Stop in here for breezy conversation on any subject.).

      Could you please tell us what an embouchure is?

        Music.
        1. the mouthpiece of a wind instrument.
        2. the adjustment of a player's mouth to such a mouthpiece.

        You mean a mouth organ player doesn't have to have an embouchure?

          Jon,

          I don't mean anything. I just asked the question.

          Jon,

          We're not mind-readers. Do you think perhaps that would have been an important piece of information to include in your first post? So far, all the replies have been off-topic, if your original post was about the Mouth Organ (i.e. harmonica).

        Nice try, but ... FAIL. A harmonica is not anyone's definition of a true wind instrument that requires embouchure formation. Neither is it an organ in any sense of the way organists use the term. Look, we get it. You are bored stiff. Lockdown has been hard on all of us but we don't take our frustrations out on our forum mates.

          I was fortunate in that I was born with an astoundingly PERFECT embouchure for playing both the piano and the organ (both pipe and electronic) !!! 😎😎😎

          This whole thread was my ill attempt at being funny. I thought some here would get a bang out of it.

          Q. What's the definition of a minor second? A: Two flutes playing a unison.
