 Re: Should the embouchure change in different registers?

Just a beginner here but, my own experience is that the embouchure stays basically the same. By that I mean the mouth/lips/chin around the mp stay the same. The air pressure is increased though. Especially for the long B and C where all the holes are closed. Also tongue position needs to be higher as the notes get higher. To get a high C (C6) my tongue needs to be pressed up to my pallet pretty good. I have no experience with the altissimo register.

I did an experiment once. I used an elastic to keep the register key opened and played all the notes in clarion easily without changing my embouchure.
