What Size Mouthpiece Should I Use

Mouthpieces change sound.  Shallower mouthpieces may make the upper end of your range easier to play but will not necessarily give you added range.  There is a big change in timbre when you change mouthpieces and you need to find a piece that sounds and feels right for the job you are doing.  Beginners should not use a mouthpiece that is too small or too large.
