Playing C4

C4 is very sharp, much more than other notes in the third
register. However, what you can do is to add a right pinky finger to the
fingering and press the Eb key. That will lower the pitch and make it more in
tune. Also, relax your lips as much as possible, keeping them tight is not
necessary and will only raise the pitch and lessen the quality of the tone.
