I've noticed that I tend to slouch and then lose my embouchure position. I am now getting the mouthpiece set with the horn's bell resting close to the hip then scoot it outward, which forces me to come to the horn and sit up, as well as using less pressure. I have a more foreward looking position. I know we're not supposed to play "bells-on" but it works so much better for me. Could folks try recreating this for me to see if it puts them in a comfortable embouchure? Thanks -Doug
