I'm trying to hit the high F on the concert a flat scale. To get to it, I use the key right above the B. However I can't get the note out due to the sound squeeking. Any advice on the embouchure or anything?

keeping a good firm embouchure will help along with good air support. Might look at alternate fingerings. Some horns play better on other fingerings than normal.
