What do I need to know before studying a trumpet mouthpiece comparison chart?

I am just starting the trumpet.

You should probably find a catalog or visit a local music store and find out the statistics on what other trumpet players are using before studying a chart, especially if you are joining a high school band or a local band. Study your instrument, and factor cost.

I suppose to be able to compare trumpet mouthpieces one should know the function of the mouthpiece and how differences in mouthpieces effect the playing and sound of the instrument.

You want to know what type of trumpet you have and what type of sound it produces - mellow, or brassy or crisp. you also want to know what feels comfortable on your lips.
