Small Mouth

It seems that my mouth is too small to play clarinet. Or my tongue is too short. I can scarcely reach the reed with my tongue, so I can't tongue. Tonguing is a super important technique.

When I put the mouthpiece further into my mouth to bridge the distance between tongue and reed, I cannot seal my lips around the wider part of the mouthpiece; air escapes.

Maybe I need to switch to a non-wind instrument. I was never a very good wind player anyhow.
