Looks like you live near Chicago, based on your email address. Why don't you spend some time and ask a few clarinet majors at Northwestern if you can take a few lessons. Why you may ask?

Because you are confused. You are getting great advice here. However the people getting accepted into Northwestern are some of the best young clarinet players in the country.

This will get rid of some confusion; you will find out more about reeds and mouthpieces, learning how to play the high notes and become not just a first chair player, but maybe a scary player that is one of the best in the country. The type of player where fellow students will fear you at auditions, if you decide to go into music.

I strongly feel taking weekly or bi-weekly lessons over at Northwestern would be really fun and I cannot begin to tell you how much you will learn, because you have to remember that these students are studying with members of the Chicago Symphony, one of the very best orchestra in the world. Surely in the top 4 or 5 in the world.

I would call the School of Music and ask whoever answers the phone how do you put up an index card asking for a college student teacher to help a high school student. Offer something low like $35 for a 1/2 hour lesson. Be willing to go up a bit in cost. If no one responds send me an email. I might have some connections for you.

Buy the mouthpiece if it means that much to you. As a mouthpiece designer I've played them and they are pretty good, but there are some much better ones made right there in Chicago by a member of the Chicago Sym. Again, send me a note and I'll provide some info. One thing about crystal mouthpieces is if you drop it you won't have to bother to pick it up, because it will bust up and crack! I've seen it happen several times! Kind of cool looking when they break, so buy a few.
