  1. Use less tongue and more air?

    I find using d and g is much quicker for me, at least on tuba. It also sounds less harsh.
    There is a French Arban's on line somewhere, now to find it...
    This may be something that varies for individuals. I find that the with "d" tongue, the lower the pitch, the more it tends to vocalize slightly. Changing the air flow not to vocalize seems to restrict it.

    Also, as to practicing the syllables, kitty kitty kitty kitty ... said as fast as possible is good.
