    You may be moving the "focus of your buzz" away from the 'straight down the barrel of the mouthpiece' picture I try to maintain. Effectively you might have changed your embouchure off centre as you slur - so it gets muffled. Do the "M" set up, then just firm up the corners of your mouth in against your molars - no, don't draw the edges of your mouth back, just IN. Make your buzz, as you do now try pressing your lips slightly together - try not to increase the pressure of the mouthpiece against your face (it doesn't matter too much if you get a bit of leakage around the mouthpiece. See how you go.

    You shouldn't be having these problems. I've never needed more than 10 minutes to have a beginner play a G in the staff. If you have access to a web cam I would be glad to take a look at you. I need to see and hear you play in order to help you.
