    I know that the Maggio method (and Callet) advocated moving your mouthpiece up on the top lip.
    Is this the prevalent approach these days?
    Can you guys give me a list of different "schools of embouchure" that incorporate this?
    It seems to be helping me, but I'm not sure that I'm getting the whole picture (besides just moving the mouthpiece up).

    I'm trying to think of orchestral players that do that as a method (as opposed to orthodontic neccesity) and I can't think of any offhand.

    Nice way to play pedal tones, though. But I never play pedals in my repertoire, so, there you go.
