  2. Trumpet Mouthpieces

My daughter/son is a high school trumpet player, what mouthpiece should they use?

Ultimately the student should follow the teachings and advice from their private lesson teacher as they see this student on a weekly basis. We typically recommend high school students to start with our Pickett YA 3, or Pickett 3C.

The 3C is a medium rim/cup combination to promote proper muscle development. The early high school years are extremely critical in developing proper brass practice, and a mouthpiece that will contribute to developing those correct fundamentals and muscle development which is paramount for the students success.
