    Make sure you're using your air to push through the musical line, and tonguing. If you have that and the fingerings down, it should be good. Careful to not overblow.

    Good luck

    If you are having trouble with the double tonuge runs, take it one step at a time. Start with just playing the first note of every pair (eighth notes) and get the notes in your muscle memory and in your ear. Then add in the second note and start slowly with the double tonguing. Add speed only once you can do it slowly.

    Are you rushing the double tongueing? Are you having a problem with the syncopation? You have singled out this one spot. How are you doing with the many, much more complicated, passages that occur before this one? If you could submit an audio file or video it would help to clarify the difficulties that you are having.

    You talking to me? :p or should I just assume that's directed at the OP?
