Here’s a tip is on how tonguing in your low register can benefit your high register.

If you do a lot of exercises, tonguing, slowly and carefully in your low register, you’ll be amazed at how much that can help your high register.

Everything above it benefits from the work you do in your low register.

Don’t neglect it.

You want to tongue through, say, Taffanel and Gaubert’s number eight, or tongue through number one, or even tongue through the first C section in number 10, or Reichert’s number two exercises – that’s arpeggios.

I like to just slowly tongue through the entire exercise, making sure that, especially in my low register, that my tongue hits and registers and makes those notes respond immediately. So, I have the sound, the resonance that I want.

And I’m amazed, after a period of time working in that section, just in that low register, how much my high register responds, and is sweeter, and is more resonant, and is more pure sounding.

So, enjoy working on that; it’s a lot of fun, it’s a lot of work, but the benefits are large.

Try this and let me know how your high register responds.

Have Fun!
