 Embouchure and articulation
Author: jam12

Hello fellow clarinetists,

I am a high school leveled clarinetist and I am concerned about my tongue position/form. So I have noticed that I kind of curl my tongue when I want to articulate a note. By doing this, you can see my top lip kind of move. I have observed other clarinetists like Michael Lowenstern and others online and all of them do not have their top lip popping or swelling outwards. Now by popping or swelling, I am saying that it moves outward very slightly. I have tried not curling my tongue because doing so does not move my top lip though I cannot get any sound when touching the reed.

I am confused on how you would touch near the tip of the reed without curling the tip of your tongue to that area especially once you put more mouthpiece in your mouth.

Maybe you are supposed to curl your tongue? What could cause my top lip to move? I feel like my tongue is pushing against the top lip causing it to move slightly because I am curling the tip of the tongue. My tone sounds pretty good however and I am pretty sure my embouchure is okay too, but I do not see any other people doing it. I can tongue decently (as in I do not have issues) but I feel like this might be a bad habit that inhibits my playing potential.
