In our marching show I have a tenor sax following the low brass part on some syncopated staccato parts. unfortunately I keep having issues with the tenor player's notes being much longer than the brasses. I've told her the basics of "notes need to be shorter", "listen to how the brass players sound" etc. now I need to get technical.
so.... what technical way can I explain how to tongue shorter, besides tip of the tongue to the very tip of the reed?
Thanks for all the help!
