Excess Saliva

I have a real problem right now, and I don't know what to do. Most of the dental issues expressed here have to do with braces. I have a special place in my heart for anyone having trouble playing the flute after they get them, but I have a different problem: New dentures. Ugh. ______________ I'm edi...

Re: Thanks

Yes, jazzyema, I didn't want the character to describe playing the flute as "I go into a magical world" like you said. I'd rather talk about the things happening to his body. Like, heart rate, tinglings, numbness, things like that. Paranoid Moment #367: I'm sure glad I used the word "nirvana," else...

You have a point there. As I'm playing in college, not as part of a job, I'm not sure if that law applies. However, that page might help out. Still, I'm fairly sure that they'll at least require me to get more invisible ones. Bright blue ear plugs that have a blue string going from one plug to the ...

I bought some green NNR 30/SNR 84 earplugs and it is a lot easier on my hears to stand the higher notes than an ordinary bundle of tissue paper. I agree with Stargle. I doubt my band director will let me use them in the concert. Maybe she will at least let me where one in my right ear since the way...

While this is good stuff, I doubt I’ll be allowed to wear them at a concert – or even a rehearsal. Guess I’ll have to ask... Stargle, I was very proud of you and Band Geek when I read your posts this morning. Regarding this last comment you made: Perhaps (if you are faced with opposition) you can s...

I admit it. Im cheap. I took a piece of tissue paper, bundled it into a ball and stuck it in my ears. Works very good. It isnt as loud but you can still hear the sound. Band Geek, friend, I'd like to ask you to reconsider this method. I have no doubt that tissue paper reduces the decibel level to a...

Ditto, Ashurii. I've searched, only to come up with the same conclusion. Bev, I'm truly sorry that you're unable to benefit from the online lessons here.

Someone will come...
