Yamaha French Horn Mouthpieces

bulletMouthpiece should be gently inserted with a slight twist.
bulletThe valve slides should be kept in good working order and moved frequently to prevent freeze-up. Tuning slide greas should be applied as needed. These slides need to be removed frequently to empty condensation from the instrument. Oil valves as needed by applying the oil to the part of the rotor post (the part that turns) underneath the rotor caps.
bulletLips should be moist, relaxed and together as if you just said the word "mem".
bulletThere should be no forced tightening , thinning, or flattening (sometimes called a smile embouchure).
bulletThe corners of the mouth should be firmly set in a downward direction.
bulletSound is produced by buzzing the lips with a quick full stream of warm air. Puffing of the cheeks or lips is not allowed under any circumstances!
bulletAfter consistent practice, the lips should be able to buzz with a fairly relaxed feel in the center.
bulletCommon mouthpiece placement is an approximate 2/3 Upper and 1/3 lower lip.
bulletThe most common problem with beginning horn players is posture related. The mouthpiece and lead pipe approach the embouchure from a very slight downward angle. You should bring the mouthpiece to you, by maneuvering the right leg - which support the edge of the bell . The lead pipe becomes an extension of the air stream. In general the student needs to sit on the right hand corner of the chair to allow free movement of the right leg. The position of the leg will depend upon the brand of horn and the size of the student.
bulletWith correct placement in the bell, the right hand adds stability to the holding position. You can check the right hand position by 1. Making sure your hand is cupped slightly (fingers together) and able to lift the bell slightly without changing hand placement. 2. The sound should move across the palm and roll up the arm. See a professional horn teacher if you need further help.
bulletCorrect hand position ensures good tone and will allow flexibility for hand tuning.
