The way I (and my band director) say to do it is as follows:
Keep loosening and tightening your lips untill you get the right pitch. Hold it for as long as you can, and try to remember what your mouth felt like. Then just try to recreate that feeling.
It worked for me, and it's working for a flute player we're getting to learn tuba.
I think it might work.
