I've noticed I've been punching certain notes, like G and C. Why am I pinching and what can I do to stop?

hello,
impossible to give you a good advice here....
aperture control, mouthpiece, breathing, stress etc, etc.

the better one i could give you, especially since you live in California, is to have a lesson with Bobby Shew that lives in New Mexico.
you'll not regret it, never in your life

best

This is one of those "talk to a teacher" or "get a lesson" threads. There could be any number of issues, most of which you're likely unaware of. Find a good teacher (a pro) and get a lesson. Or several.

Yes! (1 lesson probably won't do.. several, at least)

Agreed, and as I tell students, it doesn't matter what is done during lessons if the student does not go PRACTICE the material. I have students (and their parents) who want to think that just showing up for thirty minutes once a week is enough to fix their problems....even though I make it clear that's not the case. Sort of like the person who has a health club membership and seldom uses it; makes them feel better because they have a membership card in their wallet.

Breathing Gym is a good place to start. Try some balloons and pinwheels.
