Correct embouchure stresses and a well balanced reed/mouthpiece set up can
enable someone to play for long periods of time, double-lip, with no pain
at all. The real secret is not to bite, that is , not to use the closing
motion of the jaw to control the center and shape of the tone.
Check out my article onthe role of embouchure on my web site:
Biting is to tone what vice is to virtue
