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....

Yes alllllllll the way in sometimes over the limit. Could it be the instrument?
Yes i am in my schools band. I have a director and i know how to set my embouchure pretty good. I use an electronic tuner. I also use a 3 reed(java). Lately after having some lessons by a professional*, after warming up for a significant amount of time it would become in tune. but barely. It just really takes time for it to become better. My tone production isnt one of my biggest concerns because it is improving. I also noticed trying to play loud is pretty hard. Its like my instrument is stopping me. Is it the mouthpiece, are different mouthpieces made for different uses?

-Sorry for the noobness but im only in 8th grade.
Thanks for the help. I also play in my school jazz band and the county jazz band so i was recommended those reeds. Ill read on different reeds.

I have another question. After using my mouthpiece i noticed the the cork looks weird. Does it look normal. My selmer mpc is harder to put on than the yamaha 4C and it compresses it.
