With the right mouthpiece (Legends your high range should be no problem after a month. I teach the semi kiss or "fish" embouchure, making a pillow with your lips for the mouthpiece rim. Blow straight in and slightly upward. All his pieces have easy low range for being shallow and pedals. Most people use a bigger mouthpiece than they should, and any jr high or high school student i teach, i move from a 7c like they've been brainwashed to believe, to a 10.5 or bach 12 or even smaller in size. Like Vizzutti said, use the smallest you can and still cover the range and have comfort.

Played 10 years from 1956 to 1966. Picked it back up in 2017. Took a bit over 1 1/2 years to get back to where I was. I am definitely better now than I was. I was decent..played first chair 2 years high school and 2 years college.

I do high notes much better.

And most HS kids brainwash each other into thinking the 7C is too small! I've always played one and its never felt small.
