Which wind instruments are a problem with braces? Please make a list showing the relative difficulties.
Clarification: I am also interested in what most people would consider minor inconveniences. My 12yo has Tourette Syndrome and some sensory issues which set off some Tourette symptoms. He has a mild orthodontic problem, and my bank account has a major problem (older son in college). There are so many factors to consider when helping this child choose next year's band instrument, and deciding whether and when to get braces.
Additional background info: He likes the idea of braces in theory; he hasn't met an instrument he didn't want to play, and he picks them up quickly and does very well with all instruments he chooses to study. He has a natural affinity for jazz, but likes all styles of music.
Wind instruments played so far: 4th grade, trombone; 5th grade, bassoon; 6th grade, bari, sax and halfway through, added tenor sax. He doesn't want to go back to bassoon, but he still picks up his trombone sometimes, and he is undecided about continuing with bari/tenor.
So, I want to understand better how braces impact the playing of a wind instrument.
