In response to Katrina:

I don’t think I have excessive air leakage. I do not hear any air hissing out if that is what you are saying. Also, how should I try and touch the reed? I have tried putting the mouthpiece in my mouth and closing my lips around the mouthpiece then trying to play a note but I was unsuccessful. I just get squeaks and no vibration. I cannot feel the pressure when I just normally touch the reed by bringing it forward and touching it. When I curl my tongue and bring it forward like I am doing now, I can press the reed hard enough to get a sound. I actually get no sound when I just blow the instrument. I have to always have my tongue pressing against the reed and then I can actually get any sound. Is my embouchure not firm enough? Am I supposed to get a sound even when my tongue is not touching the reed? I keep squeaking.
