 Embouchure - Reeds
Author: mjfoboe

I took some lessons in June with a new teacher. She suggestion I move my embouchure more forward to better focus the air stream. I play an American Windows reed. It definitely improved the core of the sound. However, now that the embouchure is rounder and more cushioned about the reed I find my playing with my existing reeds can be on the flat side. I have a couple of option here ... of course clipping the reeds (which I have done). This brings up the pitch. But I also have adjusted my reeds to play more responsively with the new embouchure which brings the pitch down too. I haven't made any new reeds yet ... since I have an abundance of reeds I made before the summer.

Suggestions on reed tips (no pun intended) when playing with this more forward embouchure.
