I also had difficulty with high notes on my yamaha alto with the original yamaha mountpiece. I switched to a Selmer mountpiece and it completely solved my problem.

Beginner mouthpieces are meant for easier playability (less air = faster response time). Switching to any selmer c* should help you reach the higher registers because of the more focused air.
