 Anchor Tounging
Author: Linzi 
Date:   1999-08-24 20:22

When I first started playing clarinet I used to use the tip of my toungue when tounging, but my teacher said that that is the incorrect way to toungue. She said that you anchor/put the tip of your toungue against your lower teeth and the part of your toungue that touches the reed is closer to the middle. About a year ago I got myself to start tounging this way, my teacher has always stressed this way of playing. I finally gave it a good try and learned it although it took some adjusting, figuring she was correct and that maybe it would help my staccato. My staccato seems to have improved but I don't practice my clarinet as much because I am becoming more serious about the oboe. I recently learned at camp that the way I toungue is called "anchor tounging" and that not many people play that way. Any comments?
