It is my first post here! I have a question. I am a beginner pretty much since i haven not been playing so long but please help me. I have a Yamaha 62 series that i have had for about a year and i play it with my Selmer C*. whenever i begin playing and even after playing i notice my horn is very flat especially C-sharp. I also dont understand to clearly the different types of holes and sizes of mouthpieces could someone also help me out their? -i would appreciate my help and hope to lean more from this website.:D

i also am looking into mouthpieces and need to know more....

I assume you are playing classical music since you are in a school band.
I don't think it would be the mouthpeice. If however you are playing classical perhaps some of the problem could come from the reed you have chosen. A vandoren Java 3 is a Jazz reed, and playing on a "classical" mouthpiece could have some problems. My suggustion, is have you PT play your exact set up (use a different reed though). If he has problems with it, I would see what he suggest. If he doesn't then it could be the player.

I would have to disagree one of the most important things is tone. IF you sound bad it doesn't matter how good you play, but no one will want to lesson to you.
