 RE: Smile?

I think the concept of smiling or frowning comes from an over-simplification of the concept of a firm embouchure. It's all about wording. Sometimes, what one person sees as a frown, can be a smile to someone else!

The point is, however, to make sure that the lips are firm. One way I explain this to my students is that there should be NO WRINKLES in the lips. They should be pulled taught, and maybe have only a few wrinkles where they are pulled tight at the corners.

Good Luck!  :)
