Default Re: reed sizes and tuning

The issue of intonation is most likely to do with embouchure, although I think there's a more likely explanation given the ability to satisfy an electric tuner.

If your daughter is not playing with a vibrant tone, it will sound as if she's flat even though the pitch is correct. This is because every sound is made up of multiple harmonics, and a dull sound is the result of inharmonicity, that is the harmonics are not in tune with each other. Make certain that she has good tone and the tuning issue very likely will resolve itself.
