I will say the lip slurs are helping a ton!
For beginners, just as I would for re-beginners, I allow "lip time" for no more that 20 minutes as would follow with not less than 20 minutes rest. During rest times we discuss or I demonstrate. IMO the bad part about a beginner practicing with a mute is that they then can't identify the pure tone. At this time, by your statement, I surmise you still haven't developed your aperture and secured tight corners of your embouchure and are attempting to blow too hard causing a "blow out". Diversion to a TV, or anything else is NOT permitted in what I put forth as a Practice regimen. For a student to answer a phone would end a lesson with me, and I consider the same with a students own practice session.
After trying out the "Traps" call after doing lip slurs, I was able to hit the G above the staff. That simple addition in practice really made things a lot better.
Success is built in months and years, not days. Stop trying to hit notes for the next couple of weeks. Build a foundation and don't screw it up before it is ready.
Here is an update on what is going on.
A couple of weeks ago I started private lessons, and worked on certain exercises etc.
I have been doing what you guys said as well. My main range notes' tone has improved significantly, and just a couple of days agowe I am able to play to the F on the top line of the staff.
Thanks for your help.
