Trouble with very high notes on alto

696 Views 1 Reply 2 Participants Last post by  Gordon (NZ)
Hello, im having trouble hitting anything higher than a high d. The octave key doesnt seem to work. For example when i go for an eb3 without pushing the octave key it plays the note but when i push the thumb down it doesnt hit it. Ive tried tightening the embouchre but no luck. It work better if i blow very lightly though...

I admit im not experienced so could be me, but i never remember having this much trouble with it.

Any help?
