Abstract: I was quite surprised when I learned that there was interest in reviewing my book, Broken Embouchures, in Medical Problems of Performing Artists. The book was written for professional brass players who have encountered performance-related embouchure problems and lip injuries and uses terminology unique to music and brass technique. Although I suspected that a non¿brass player would have difficulty fully understanding our peculiar lingo, I had hoped that a review of the book might offer the performing arts medical community a new insight into how brass players suffer overuse. Dr. David M. Steinhorn reviewed Broken Embouchures. Although he understood its message better than I would have expected from a musical layperson, I would like to respond to a few of his observations.
