This really should not be an issue for Tenor, most of the time it is hard to get young players not to tongue too hard. |
Try using a different vowel, a hard vowel sound not TUU or TAA, try dit or dot. Keep the air pressure- from the core, but completely stop the air from going through the mouthpiece with the tongue. Have her work on playing just one note and clipping it off with a dit tongue, then add more notes, working to a scale. Then transfer that to the music.
