nah its alright, unless its stoopidly fast! (was gonna say summat else then but restricted myself too much of this i think :guiness ) anyhoo, no not really, but there is the odd occasion, i fink its a case of buildin up[ ur muscles with playin, so do abit, have a break, do abit more, have a break, and that way i fink u shid build up ur musckles.
but if u start off doin 10mins a day for a week or woteva, then go up 10mins for the next week, dunno if that would work, so dunno
As with any instrument (and I have tried with a few!) if you've been playing the instrument a few years, and are playing it correctly, then you should only get fatigued, rather than actually hurting. Everyone gets tired after long amounts of playing, however, I find with percussion, just like brass, it's best to do some kind of warm up before doing any long amounts of playing.
not normally, although I do remember one time after carrying 4 big books back to the library (stupidly holding them infront of me for about a mile walk from student halls) and not being able to lift my cornet in rehearsal for longer than a minute SERIOUSLY was not good!
I think teachers should be allowed to sue students for inflicting pain and torture on our delicate ears during lessons. Just think! £500 every time some child presses the *beep* demo button on a keyboard, £1000 every time some cornet player asks if they can play "Titanic". £150 every time they forget their instrument/music..
Oh I can see the money rolling in!
( :lol: all the way to the bank)
