Hello to whoever this may concern,
I am in need of help and would highly appreciate it if my request was answered.
You see, I have been playing the bass clarinet for about 2 and a half years.
I know most of my scales off by heart, have improved my sound quality drastically and can sight read sufficiently.
Yet just recently my music conductor has informed me that my tonguing is not adequate when I play.
She says that I am using the back of my tongue or something along those lines. She calls what I am doing, "clucking".
If I were to learn how to tongue properly, it would greatly improve my performance.
I am open to what ever advice there is to take. I have tried playing in front of a mirror and I still can't seem to get it right.
Thank you to those who answer this.
