During TOL exercises, when playing say Arban scales at relative slow speed, the lower lip tends to wanna "fall" below the mouthpiece rim.

Have any of you experienced this?

What happens if you tip the horn down slightly to put more pressure on the lower lip?

oxleyk, You are a genius.
Just slightly (in fact ever so slightly) tipping down the horn indeed keeps it on.
Thank you.

I still would love to know if others have run into this "anomaly"?
