    how are you supposed to do your tongue lyk that! i mean dnt u jst tighten your lips n sorta blow in it. How can you move your tongue n all that? Isnt it all to do with your lips?

    It sounds like you might be really new to the horn, but basically sound is produced by holding air, but to start the air cleanly we need to begin the air with a consonant sound with a vowel following, such as "da" or "ta" or "te"
    "d" and "t" are the two most common ways i've heard to begin, but the vowel is the most important part
    what double ("da-ga") or triple ("da-da-ga") tonguing does is alternates the tongue from the top and bottom of the mouth, which aids in creating faster tonguing.
    However, it is advisable to develop one's single tonguing before moving to multiple tonguing

    Double tonguing is, in simple terms, getting two articulations or notes from one tongue movement. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DOUBLE TONGUE UNTIL YOU HAVE ESTABLISHED YOUR PLAYING. Attempting too early can lead to problems that can interfere with natural, relaxed production.
    One step at a time. It would be unwise to try to leap to the third floor in one go

    Whisper Ticker-Ticker-Ticker with your teeth clenched and you'll get a good feel for what the tongue is supposed to do. I'd 2nd what Ozboy said. Don't try to run before you can crawl!!

    Hitman,
    I am really getting to like you. One lesson and you already can't get enough. I do not know what you are on, but I wish it was available for a lot more players. That is the stuff that FIRST trumpet players are made of!

    That being said, let's not put the cart before the horse. Your first job ist to learn how to get big, relaxed air through the horn. Do a search on "circle of breath". That is the basis of all playing. Once your air/lips/brain are synchronized, you can devote some time to cutting the air up with your tongue! If you jump in too soon, it is tougher to clean the act up!
