Aims and objectives: 1.1What is embouchure to wind players (Fig 1)   Embouchure is the mechanism to form the lips in order to correctly insert the mouthpiece while playing a wind instrument.    Fruncht defines  this concept like “ a well-organized collection of perioral and  jaw muscles used to[...]

Methods and materials: METHODOLOGY:Population, procedures. 4.1 Design of study Two trials were conducted, one medical and another acoustic, both complementary, using different methods and materials. Population: The study was conducted on 16 adult horn students’ players. In the few references to similar studies, the samp[...]

Results:          1. Of ultrasounds           2. The spectral decomposition of sound 5.1. ULTRASOUNDS     5.1.1. COMPARISON amount greater / lower lip is inside the mouthpiece. Various types of sections were used t[...]

Conclusion: There is a coincidence that the samples nos. 4 and 5 received a lower percentage muscle in the analysis using ultrasound. Therefore, as CONCLUSIONS in both analysis, we can say that: (fig. 21 and 22)   Most of the students are placed in a standard regarding the spectral decomposition (no huge d[...]
