    Anthony, I have the same problem. When I played in high school (1949) all I had to do was "toot". I began AND ended the note with the toungue. Now my teacher is trying very hard to get me to end the note by stopping the air flow but not with the toungue!
    She wants the note to sound like "tooh" and I just haven't got it yet. It sounds great when she does it.
