Got my first sax, a Jupiter tenor and was very pleased after 30 minutes to be able to play a scale on it. The kids found it too loud and ordered me into the hallway to practice. Walking through the doorway, my left hand groping for the lightswitch... the wind started to blow the door shut... I instinctivly reached out for the door with the right hand. Letting go of the bottom of the horn, she penduilmed the mouthpice and reed at speed into my top lip. Ouch, much blood and practice cancelled for a day or two. Comical beginners mistake or what!
