 Eb Clarinet and Flutter Tongue
Author: maiohmai

We recently read the Strauss' Alpine Symphony in our Literature and Repertoire class and all was going well until we hit the section where the E-Flat clarinet has to flutter tongue a high C and a B at "pp" dynamic. Even ignoring the dynamic marking, I fail to produce any sound when attempting to flutter.

I roll my "r's" without having to growl on B-flat clarinet fairly easily, although it's quite flat in pitch (more or less having to be really loose in the embouchure in order for the flutter to be successful.)

On E-flat, I can only flutter up to the throat tones and no higher...

Any advice, tips or tricks to keep in mind?

On the road to a non-collapsing embouchure!
