    I've had a look and I do have one main question, have you had private lessons or are you self taught?. There are a number of issues I can see from your videos which lead me to believe you are self taught. I am really concerned about that issue with your lower lip and the area round your jaw puffing up but. To me it looks as though you are very tight in the lip and instead of allowing air to blow through the horn you are clamping it back with you lip, giving it no where to go other than pushing the lower area of your face out. Squeezing for high notes you are not really ready for can cause this. Please open your eyes when you play a bit more. I know fashion for emoting and players at the extremes of jazz has players close their eyes but you will be suprised at the difference in relaxation if you open them. I hope Stuart has helped you
