 Re: Flutter tongue

It's always come naturally to me, but I've had to help students with it from time to time.

Here's a bunch of stuff you can try:


The simplest concept I've found is to plant your tongue on the roof of your mouth near your front teeth, or on the teeth themselves and then try to keep it there as you attempt to blow air. When your air forces the tongue to move you may get something like a flutter. If your tongue doesn't move, relax it slightly once you are exerting some significant air pressure. (All this without the clarinet in your mouth). Also, it may take many attempts over time before it suddenly 'clicks'.
