Complete Pedagogical Concepts for Low Brass Performance

Clinic Synopsis:

Concept: Our concern as players must be with the beautiful sound quality of the tuba. When sound production becomes more efficient the use of breath becomes more efficient. Good physical habits must be developed by the player to be a conditioned response. Our main concentration as a player is on the “end result” or the message we are expressing through our music.
