I'm a high school trumpet player (end of grade 11) who's been playing since Grade 7. In the last few months or so, I've taken to practicing in front of a mirror, and I'm just sort of realizing now that my embouchure might be a complete disaster. My range is okay (tops out at about F or G above high C), but my form seems awful. First things first, my front teeth are in crooked. The one on my left grew in slightly overlapping the one on my right. I've just now been noticing that my embouchure is slightly off center because of it - it's just a hair left (my left) of center. The horn still points straight, it's just off center. If I look at the pinky ring looking down the leadpipe, I find it just barely misses the septum of my nose and instead lines up perfectly with the start of the left nostril. Second problem is that my embouchure is strange to look at. I also have a horrendous overbite, which doesn't help things. Here's the deal - my bottom lip comes in ever so slightly (about level with my front teeth, which isn't a great distance thanks to the overbite - if I bite down, my teeth touch the tip of my bottom lip). My top lip protrudes just a little bit and I play like that. It looks very, very strange though - my top lip is sort of puckered out, and so it almost looks like a semi-circle made of mostly top lip. I understand all of my descriptions kind of suck, but I hope you can kind of visualize it. I'm concerned because I've never seen anyone play like this before. Nobody's ever told me it's wrong, but it really concerns me because it looks incorrect - I haven't met anyone else who uses this sort of bastardized embouchure. Will I run into problems down the road? Should I try to change my embouchure or should I stay the course?
