ive been practicing using less pressure on my mpc and i thought i had a breakthrough 2 days ago.
i sounded clearer, my range felt easier (didnt increase), and my endurance felt longer
i no longer had a ring around my lips after only 10 minutes of warm ups
i showed my director(she is a trumpet player) and she said that my new embouchure wouldn't work out well for me in the long run
she called it a smiling embouchure, because the higher i go the more i tighten my corners and it starts looking like a smile
she didnt explain to me how it was bad tho
anyone here know what she was talking about?
