This is a common problem. It could be many things.
1. Your corners may be leaking. Even if they're tight it can still happen. Try putting some chapstick or carmex on your corners the next time you play.
2. Not putting enough air through the horn may also be the problem. Take it from Arnold Jacobs, every breath you take should be a maximum breath. Also remember to use a steady flow of WARM air, this is very important.
3. You have your teeth too close toghether. When you play, your teeth should not be close toghether. Try separating them as far apart as possible. This will not only remove some buzzing, but it will also give you a much bigger sound.
I hope these are of some help. Good luck!!! Your brother in Tuba, Steve
