My problem is this.
On a piece of my region music, I have a lot of measures containing sixth teen notes that are articulated with a staccato above it. My tonguing and articulation is fine in a lower register but higher register its very sloppy unless I take it slow. I've been told to learn how to double tongue to play this parts but honestly I can not have a clean double tongue in about 2 months time or to even learn how to double tongue properly. The tempo of the piece is allegretto affettuoso which is pretty fast.
Here are my options
1) I can slow the piece down below the tempo given and play it to where I am comfortable
2) I just go for it, play it sloppy but meet the audition standards.
What I'm doing right now is just practicing my articulation and trying to learn double tonguing. Both of these I can not do overnight and will take quite some time. Not sure what to do here, any help is appreciated, thanks!
