Subj: [kl] Nielsen Concerto
Date: Fri, 28 Apr 2000 22:27:45 -0400

Hi, my name's Paul Miller. I'm new to the list, so I thought that I should
introduce myself. I'm 19 and a clarinet major at UCSD. I'm studying with
Bob Zellickman (an excellent teacher, by the way, and I highly reccomend
him). I have a question for whoever is so inclined to answer... I've been
cursed with a naturally slow tongue, and, as the subject line indicates, I'm
working on the Nielsen concerto. In many places, i have to switch to brush
(or double) tonguing to get enough speed. The problem is, with brush
tonguing, it's hard for me to move between octaves cleanly, and it's also
difficult to play cleanly at the high range of the horn. So my questions
are: a.) does anyone else use this technique, and b.) what should i do to
clean up these issues?

Thanks so much!

-- Paul
