try working with your mouth position. Make more of an "O" shape with your mouth and don't try to bite down so hard on the mouthpiece. Also, try using a weaker strength of reed, maybe like a 1 and a half vandoren classical reed. Only once you fully feel comfortable try working around other reed strengths.

Good luck!
