Post subject:  Sore throat

After I've played whistle for a long time, it seems my throat gets sore. Has this ever occurred to you? Is it for my whistling or is it just a coincidence??? Do you think there's anything in my technique that can prevent it?

To answer your question, Zoukie, I've never had that happen to me, no. It's probably a virus or something.

Well Zoukie I think I may have experienced what you are talking about. Today I was singing a hymn at church and I noticed my throat tightening up on me. I might describe it as a sore throat. I have never had this playing the whistle though. Perhaps it would happen if I was trying to tighten my emboucher. I don't think it is a problem though.

It's probably the increased breathing while whistling. I never whistle in my basement "practice room" unless I bring something to drink. I dry out way too fast.

It really could be any of a number of things. A virus is the most likely. Also, how's the humidity right now in Ireland? If it's low, it could cause a sore throat when whistling or singing. If you're stressed or emotional when you play, your throat may tighten some. Of course, if you've taken up knife-swallowing you're bound to have a bit of a sore throat, I'd think. :?

Improper breathing techniques? I've come to realize that breath control while playing the whistle is similar to and just as important as breath control while singing. (Maybe there's a vocal coach out there who could expound on that?)

Acid reflux could be a culprit too.

I have noticed that after playing a long time my throat may become a little dry from breathing through the mouth a lot. All that extra air rushing across the throat drys it a little.
Might try a tea spoon of chocolate syrup.

I did not expect something like this from you Adrian. Actually I was thinking more along the line of Jim W saying not to put the whistle in the mouth so far.

I thought the picture hinted the same thing. ;)
