Any tips on double tonguing? Our director just introduced it to brass and I'm struggling@peenipple
if you play trumpet, think “dugga dugga” (I am not a trumpet player, my friend who was the trumpet soloist at Cascades just said this—if anyone else wants to add, feel free)
as far as low brass which is what I play, I like to think of double tonguing not as a form of tonguing, but more of a different articulation. when I say that, I mean that you don’t want to stop the air, so don’t think of it as tonguing really fast, but think of it as an articulation. also, think “tu” to open your throat to give the resonant sound that you need! hope that helped some :)
Booty is good. Booty is great. Drum corps booty is FANTASTIC.
