One thing I learned in my last lesson was to slur something first before trying to tongue it. This helps to make sure you are keeping a good even air flow. If you can play it evenly while slurring it makes it that much easier to play with tonguing. I have always known the importance of a good even air flow. I just didn't know how much I wasn't doing it until these first two lessons. The tonguing is so much easier when it has a good air flow to ride on. Sorry to keep posting so much about these lessons, but I get more excited each time I see the value in the things that my teacher has suggested.
