I once had a big issue of jaw engagement. For a few weeks, I worked on low/mid range without engaging my jaw. It helped significantly.

So, I’d say to avoid things that make you feel like you’re pushing too hard or engaging the wrong muscles. Be conscious of this issue while playing MTM and seek to make improvement. Watch the aperture corner videos and mmmmmaaaahhhhhhhoooooo all day long. It’ll get better!
