I have taught the importance of neck + mouthpiece pitch for many years and have used it in my own teaching with great results. It is important not only in determining the correct tension for the embouchure, but it also matches the frequency of the mouthpiece and neck to that of the "missing cone". In short, the pitch for alto should be Ab concert and the pitch for tenor should be E concert. That's why I was pleased to find this video by Jerry Bergonzi, a highly respected teacher and player.
