“bite down on the mouthpiece so it can’t move” and then proceeded to grab the barrel of my clarinet and push it side to side while I was playing, to ensure that I was biting hard enough.


I don't agree with the concept of asking students to bite, but the other portion is not necessarily bad. Some beginning students use no embouchure support. Wiggling the clarinet can result in them firming up their lips to keep the instrument steady, making it an easy way to fix the problem.
