AEM ONLINE – Double, Double, Toil and Trouble: An Introduction to the Witchery of Double Tonguing on the Recorder with Tabea Debus, recorder

November 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm EDT


“The tongue is generally the tool with which the notes on the recorder can be delivered in a lively manner.” (Johann Joachim Quantz, 1752). Most of us are familiar with one or multiple types of tonguing, with dege or did’ll, varying consonances and vowels — all used to play music in an engaging and speaking manner. However, many are introduced to the concept of double-tonguing quite late and may find the prospect daunting: toil and trouble indeed!
Regardless of your level of experience this class takes a look into the specifics of fast articulation, its mechanics, Renaissance and Baroque music examples… and most importantly some tips and tricks for bewitching your listeners with your double-tonguing. Geared to: alto recorders. Pitch: A = 440.


Join AEM ONLINE for new classes in September! Register for any number of sessions – classes are $25 per session. Music for the classes is posted in advance. Recordings of the class are available to participants for 7 days.
