    Re: mouthpiece size

    7C is a good starter mouthpiece. Stick with it for an year or 2 to get the basics mechanics of playing under your belt and only when you decide if you want to do something more specific you may need a teacher to help you pick up another mouthpiece if needed. However, I am not suggesting that till then it would be a good idea to learn the trumpet on your own...

    a 7C is what everyone (usually) starts out with --- it will work fine --- don't get caught up in mpc and pro trumpets --- you will know in 2 or so years if you want a change --- otherwise the 7C is just fine. practice, practice, practice will make the 7C comparable to any other mpc (in range and sound)
