1. What is concidered the proper way to tounge a note. Please describe in complete detail

2. I hear the mouth piece ring when I play higher and lower notes (mid range okay). I thint it might be that i have my face pressed to hard into the mouthpiece, however, I am unsure. Do you have any suggestions to help me stop this annoying ring?

3. What is the fingering for the high G on a bbflat tuba (top bar in the staff). 1+2 works, and I tried 3 alone, and it seems okay, but is there a better fingering? A complete fingering chart maybe?
