 Should the embouchure change in different registers?
Author: BronzeOrbiter

Hello everyone, I have a question about clarinet embouchure. Do you keep the embouchure exactly the same throughout all registers on the clarinet, or does it change at all? My teacher has told me that you never change your embouchure when playing classical and keep is fixed as possible, but I have read somewhere that you make different shapes with your mouth like an ‘eee’ shape or an ‘orr’ shape.

Can anyone clarify my thoughts as I am really confused right now. Thanks.
