Another off the wall suggestion. Years ago, one of my instructors had me buzz my lips and slowly put my mouth on the mouthpiece, whether apart or in the horn. This was to experience what the feeling of the buzzing and source of the sound production was like and to learn that the mouthpiece is just there to channel the sound into the horn. And incidentally, to keep pressure on the mouthpiece at a minimum.

My two cents worth.
