Topic: Reversing Tight Embochure on Bassoon
I don't exactly know if this is the right forum to post this but:
I have been having trouble with having a tightening embochure. Mostly in slower, lyrical music, and stuff with longer sustained notes in the tenor register ^. I was wondering about excercises I could do to stop biting, as I understand how much of a problem this is for my playing. My teacher Alan has done the Maxym pencil excercise, which helps temporarily after I take the pencils out.
Ask not what your reed can do for you, but what you can do for your reed.
