Joaquín Fabra

Graduated in the specialty of trombone and euphonium.
He enrols the Madrid Symphony Band in 1982, and due to unadequate guidance, he rapidly starts finding trobles when taking the air in as well as releasing it. His diafragm is parcially contracted, his glottis closes and the embouchure gets acutely disconfigured. Though he practices an average of five hours a day things seem to go worse and worse and playing the instrument becomes a tedious and hated task. His capacity to perform diminishes dramatically, but he keeps trying, making efforts impossible to quantify by all those who fortunately have never gone through an experience like his.
After looking for information he realizes that’s he is suffering a movement disorder that names “Embouchure Dystonia”, such as it is known nowadays. But he inmediately disagrees with the cause that the medical community atributtes to it, cause he experiences the disorder only when performing with the instrument than not on the mouthpiece.
He started a long pilgrimage searching for an answer that never arrived though he had asked for advice among world-renowned musicians and teachers.
His disorder becomes a vital experience that needs an answer and the author becomes the subject and object of hiw own research. For years he´ll develop a therapy to solve his problem and, later on, by 1986 he´ll start working with musicians who are going through similar traumatic experiences.
