    Looking for a piece with a lot of difficult altissimo. I am planning for a college recital next year and am looking for something fun to work on. Preferably, I am looking for a piece with fast altissimo runs and or large leaps in the altissimo. I'd love to hear your suggestions! Thanks, Garrett
  2. What to Buy & Why: Mouthpieces
    Hello everyone ! I'm trying to decide which tip opening to get for my d'addario select Jazz mouthpiece in, but I'm having trouble understanding what the tip opening sizes does. I know wider ones let you use softer reeds, and smaller ones make you use harder ones - but I'm not sure what the...

    I currently play on a Custom EX (Series I) but when I purchased it I did not have many options to try out.

    So, I'm going to be a senior in high school in a few months, and I've started contemplating what major I should go into. Here's the thing: I am planning on going to dental school. In other words, it'll be like I'm double-majoring, technically, with Pre-Dentistry. (Which, to get into dental...
