Baritone has way more ability to lip out of tune then Trumpet or trombone. I have had several students start on Baritone and struggle to get a firm enough embouchure to get pitch up. Corners of the embouchure need to be set and firm to keep the embouchure in line with pitch center. Have them work on high range even if it is really pinched and then use that type of embouchure to play mid and low range. This should help the pitch come up. Good Luck
