The amazing tongue

This video is more for the flute and clarinet students I teach, but any student may find it interesting. The tongue is so much more than a big blob in our mouth that feels like it can get in the way sometimes. A horn player went into an MRI machine and they recorded the action of the tongue. You can even see double tonguing. The last section shows the long cavity and the ribs and how she supports.
