Bb Horn

I'm having trouble tonguing fast...?

I play the French Horn in Concert Band, and a marching Bb horn in marching band. I've been given a piece that's easy enough for the rest of my section. It has a bunch of fast passages which require sharp, fast staccatos. For some reason, I just can't move my tongue fast enough. I sound sloppy, I slow down, and it just sounds bad. I'm pretty sure my technique isn't wrong, but maybe I'm wrong. Also, I have no idea how to double tongue. I'm kind of stuck. What should I practice? How should I practice? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Where does your tongue hit when you are playing. It should hit at the top of your mouth where the teeth connect to the roof of the mouth. Check that out first, if it is hitting the lips you will have to move it up. Secondly, make sure it is your tongue that is moving and not your lungs. If you really can't go that fast try hitting every other note.

I learned double tonguing as "tooka, tooka, tooka"... the tongue does the first part and the throat closes for the second. Its a good skill, but like many, hardly ever used with the horn.
