Sorry if these posts are extremely annoying, I just really need help!
I'm currently a Freshman in high school and in December, I switched my embouchure. I used to play waaayyy to the right and my tone and tongue were awful, so my teacher decided to switch me over to the center. I try to practice an hour a day. Warm ups, Arbans, Clarke, Pieces, Warm down. After nearly 4 months of this, I've managed to get myself up to a high G or a high A on a good day, but I still think I'm using too much mouthpiece pressure.
Does anyone have any tips? I've been stuck on this G for over a month now and I've been starting to feel a little discouraged :( Marching season is going to start up again soon and playing first part will be a really big challenge for me. I could barely play it last marching season with my embouchure all the way to the side. And also, does the pencil trick work?
Thank you in advance!
