For some reason, whenever I play a piece of music (in this case, H. Vincent's 'Air for Baritone/Cornet'), I find that my tonging is very stutters and rough between notes, yet if I play one note, low or high, and tongue it, it sounds just fine. I have a solo tomorrow (March 1st.) and it sounds pretty bad for this reason. Are there any ways which I could improve my tonging so that it actually sounds decent + tips for my first solo? I have been playing since November of 2022.
P.S. I have to slur (legato) most of it, where most of the sputtery/stuttering sound occurs.
