How I Overcame My Lip Injury And Won An Orchestral Audition – Michael Harper | Ep. 56




Google Play


This week on the podcast, we not only have a great episode for you, but also a very important one as well. I was able to interview Michael Harper, 2nd trumpet in the Jacksonville Symphony about the lip injury he sustained earlier in his trumpet career, and what it was like to go through it.

I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to do this episode with Michael for a few reasons. As always, Michael is the epitome of a great guy and a great player. But I’m thankful to be able to get his story out there as well. Injuries are a real struggle that many people go through in silence, and it doesn’t have to be that way.

Shorter blog post today because the episode is short and Michael says all of it so much better than I do. If you want to reach out to him to say thanks for being so open, you can find him here on Instagram – @mharper26

Until next time,


Success! You're on the list.
