 Re: Oboe double tonguing

For those of us with large oral cavities (okay, okay - big mouths) double-tonguing is extremely hard to achieve. I only hit it correctly some 70% of the time, and low notes are much harder than the upper octaves.

I find that bringing the tongue closer to the roof of your mouth and constricting your oral cavities (even the throat) helps with double-tonguing. does it kill my tone? Yes - but I'm double-tonguing, so who can tell!

While I'm glad it works for Beatrice, my experience is that without doing all of the above it just sounds like a throaty bubble.
