I'm having a bit more embouchure problems and it is apparent because my sound sounds shrill and some notes are flat (throat tones and left hand upper register). I've been told to take as much mouthpiece and to push the sides of my mouth. I generally ignored the negative consequences because I thought I would get used to them. However, the more I play, the more I realize that the "right" amount of mouthpiece I should be taking should be way less than normal in order to achieve a focused, dark sound on a closed mouthpiece. Also, when I push from the sides, my bottom lip becomes flabby and my left hand notes become flat. Any opinions?
