I'm a 'older' (returned to school for a music degree) student and while preparing for my recent jury ( if you don't know what I mean by 'music jury' please do not respond!) my professor noticed my mouthpiece was too low on my upper lip. He told me that the entire 'red-meat' of the upper lip is supposed to be inside the cup, the inner rim should be as close to the skin above the lip as possible. I had/have the entire mp sitting on my lip with room to spare, you can see the mark. I have big lips and I'm having a lot of trouble making the change. I've even tried a 1-1/2 C and it seems too small for my lips to fit in. Any help on changing my embouchure would be appreciated. Please, also, don't try to sell me your favorite mp, I need some real advice here before spring semester.
