Topic: Double Tongue/Embochure Pressure
I have been having two problems lately.
1, my double tongue isn't nearly as fast or crisp as it used to be. I just need some advice getting it faster, and more clean. Also, I have been having trouble double tonguing below C (octave below middle C).
Also, I have been having trouble with embochure pressure. My embochure has been getting tighter lately, and it is making playing difficult. If I try to loosen my embochure, air leaks, and my pitch sags. I've been trying to work on air support, and practicing in larger amounts of smaller sessions, though it isn't helping... It's just been frustrating, I have been having trouble playing, not doing nearly as good as I was last fall......
Ask not what your reed can do for you, but what you can do for your reed.
