I've been playing the clarinet for several years in the school band, and I began taking private lessons about six months ago. I've been able to do everything my instructor told me to do easily, except that I have a horrible embouchure. I can't keep my chin flat. He keeps telling me to smile and then close my mouth around the mouthpiece, but it hasn't been working out. Does anybody have any advice on how I could improve it?
