Full Abstract: In a paper first presented as part of a symposium held in Aspen, Colorado in 1984, Professor Farkas delivers an eloquent explanation of maladies common to brass players. The discussion goes into some detail about problems related to embouchure, breathing apparatus, holding the instrument, and the psychology of stage fright. His article is particularly useful for the medical professional because it includes an explanation of the performance elements affected by each disorder discussed.
