Man, is this an all-of-the-time thing or a some-of-the-time thing?
It can be either, as some times it when every I play around high c, but others times only when I'm rather fatigued.
See if you can make it happen at will, and analyze how you make it buzz out the side, then simply stop doing it.
I'll be sure to try that.
I would right now, but neighbors.
The main thing is to focus on the part of your lips outside the mouthpiece while not compromising suppleness and flexibility within. With time and proper practice, this problem will go away. Using a Warburton P.E.T.E. might help you get in the habit of forming a more centered, precise embouchure, but remember that this is a supplemental exercise, and results vary with the individual.
Isn't that the name of a Norwegian female trumpet player?
No you are thinking of the famous paraplegic Dickensian trumpet player with a penchant for shouting "God Bless Us Evey One" before regaling the audience with Christmas Carols
You know "Tiny Tim Helseth"
A true trumpet cracker joke
Occasionally, with COPD as I gasp for air from the corners and closure doesn't follow immediately I notice a minimal lip buzz from that sector and shut it off quickly enough that it may not be noticed by others or disrupt my continuance of playing significantly. As an advocate and consistent user of P.E.T.E. IMO such has no bearing on this issue.
If you are not really "prepared" to do what is required, things creep into your playing, then you get the choices taken away.......
If you have "only" been playing for 3 years and already have a lot of parts up to C above the staff, you better have a very stable DAILY routine and start dealing with the issues. We do not build range by adding ever more tension and pressure. We build it by playing smarter. Excessive pressure only works for a little while. I teach the use of "relaxed" lip slurs and longtones to build range.
