Wrong Sound

Hello every one (new here)

    You should definitely find a teacher who is able to teach you about a proper embrouchure. I agree, move to another teacher.

    Cheers,

      Your could also try some different reeds.  Vandoren’s are great but you might want to consider something just a little heavier.  Often the noise you are describing can come from reeds that are too soft or sometimes if they are overly heavy.

    I would not call it a wrong sound, it can happen that you sort of sqeak(very high) because the reed is too dry. And yes, the proper amount of mouthpiece you put in your mouth as well as pulling your lower lip over the bottom teeth to make a cushion for the mouthpiece, are all very important aspects of producing a good, clean sound. Your upper teeth go directly on the upper side of the mouthpiece and not your lip, thats only on the bottom. OK?
