THere’s 2 ideas that spring to mind. The quick way is to place the melodica so that the keyboard is aligned with your left hand. This should mean the mouthpiece is pointing away from your mouth. Make a hose extension to reach from the mouthpiece back up to your mouth. Does this make sense? Another way would involve modifying the instrument. I’m not sure what your DIY skills are like… It would be a matter of removing both the mouthpiece and the moisture release section, and swapping them round.
