Default Anyone know any pieces that I could practice my double tonguing with?

I learned double tonguing or, as i like ot call it, the technique of two tongues a few months ago.
I haven't mastered it yet though so I really want to practice but I don't have too many pieces to practice it with. Anybody know any?

Thanks for the help.

Thank you YKB for telling me the piece. Seems rather fast after looking at the samples. I guess I can always start slow hehe.

I find the studies and variations in Arban very thorough for improving and strengthening multiple tonguing. It's a trumpet method, but I reckon it could work on flute.

Thank you suetuba for telling me about the Arban pieces. Seems to focus more on the stuff aside from speed. Hope my fingers don't die from playing all the pages at once.

Normally when you play a not on a flute, you tongue it as if you are saying 'two'. With double-tonguing, you can play many fast notes (sixteenth and thirty-second) one after the other while still tonguing them as if you are saying 'two' and 'koo', 'tee' and 'kee', etc. Rather hard to master (at least for me). Very annoying right now for me . Double tonguing is evil.

It certainly sounds evil. I'm always scared to death that I'm overblowing when I tongue my notes...
