Hi.I'm an almost 4 year flute player and it might be a waste of time to ask,but...I'm getting involved in all this other musical stuff,like getting to be in college bands,and I really enjoy being there and everything,but I have a problem.Most of this college music requires double tounging,which I'm not able to perform.Does ANYONE have ANYTHING that will help?Thanks

I've heard two or more mian ways to double tongue on a flute. It's supposed to be a whole lot easier on the flute than on reeds and double reeds.
Anyways, you can start by saying tu-ku, te-ka, ta-ka,da-ga, or du-gu.(I guess I know more thn two. Anyway good luck!!

tu-ku is what I teach. I would disagree that MOST college music requires a double tongue. SOME will, not most.
