Does anyone know what's going on when your throat moves when you articulate? Is that mean you are using the middle of the tongue on the tip? Any tricks for getting a student to stop doing this?

I'm not really sure if it's anything to be concerned with or not.  I'm much more interested in keeping stability in the chops, between the mouthpiece and teeth - is the jaw moving? Is there a playing problem, or just something you see in the neck?

Hi Doug,

We've been working to minimize movement in the jaw, it moves very little now and looks like the mouthpiece is stable. My concern is a licking sound that occurs during the articulation. How do I get rid of that? I thought the throats might be the problem.

Best,
Alex
