Hi there, Make sure you are attempting this with a competent teacher otherwise things could go horribly wrong. A good book that really helped me when i changed my own embouchure was 'A Physical Approach to Elementary Brass Playing' by Claude Gordon. It's a brilliant lesson by lesson book that builds up the fundamentals right from the beginning and helps you to understand how things work.

I play trombones...what about you? Can you explain what embouchure is? What is the fundamental pitch of the harmonic series called?

I throat sing, play the miniharmonica handsfree and play the nose whistle. All of these instruments/techniques are entirely dependent on mouth shape. I've messed with the bugle, which also is 100% mouth shape dependent, but it's clearly not my instrument, as my dogs remind me whenever I try to play!

I suspected from the spam link originally posted, that the OP doesn't actually know the bell of a horn from its mouthpiece. I was just in a "playful" mood!
