I have been playing for about 6 months, and while that's a short amount of time, I've been told that my playing is coming along pretty well. My question is about embouchure. I've noticed that I use more upper lip than most other players. I seem to get the best tone when I use about 2/3 Upper 1/3 Lower lip. It might even be a tad higher up than that. Is this a bad thing? I've searched the forums for this question, but mostly what I found was about too much lower lip instead. One of my friends said I have a "french horn" embouchure. I feel like my range may be suffering a little bit, but I'm going for a dark tone, which seems to be coming along fine.
If I were to completely center my embouchure (which is what everyone says is ideal) how do I go about adjusting?
My embouchure is very centered horizontally, I'm asking only about vertical placement.
Any comments or suggestions???
