    I've been playing for nearly two years and now have started to suffer with aching roof of mouth and back of toungue after 45 mins of practice. Is this normal?

    Probably not the best place for medical advice!

    I suggest you go to your GP first.

    And if your GP finds nothing amiss, then have a professional tutor check out your technique. It may be something easily curable.

    I wouldn't waste your time. Your GP will just say it's a virus before heading off to the golf course.

    I went to see mine the other day with my feet and he said, "I don't know what's wrong with you Mr Sherunkle, I think it must be due to drinking" so I said I would go back when he was sober!

    I suggest you stop playing after 44 minutes!

    Great advice! Anyway, my sore throat's gone now...even after 45 mins of practice!

    hydration - drink some water before playing and drink your practice

    Bit of a typo there mate, I'll correct it for you:

    It's been a long, of course I meant drink (preferably water) during your practice session :)

    And then practice drinking ale afterwards.....

    Yes! You have a point! But me being new to all this enbouchure malarky wondered if my worry might be common among folk new to wind instrument practice... Also...of late I came to my attention that trombone players were an authority on just about everything!
