Beginners: 5C or 5B if they have large/thick lips. |
High school: 5C/5B, switch to 3C when developmentally ready. Some advanced players will wind up on a 1.5C by end of their senior year.
Buy Bach mouthpieces. Blessing may look the same, but the plating is much, much weaker/thinner. It wears off in a year or two, then your kids have raw brass on their face. If you choose to buy off-brand, investigate first.
What trumpet mouthpiece do your beginners start on?
What trumpet mouthpiece do your high school players play on?
I understand there is not a one size fits all when it comes to mouthpieces. I am just looking for a majority answer.
