    Have your teacher check for leaks in all pads; leaks are cumulative, so the leak might not be near the bad notes. Check the pad of the octave key, too! Then- check everything from the neck up - corks, mouthpiece and reed suitability for you. From your question, could be anywhere - but I suspect neck/mouthpiece/reed/ligature.
