Tuba Pedagogy from Day One

  • thumbnail for Patrick Sheridan
  • Day One clinics are intended to be short, content-rich, “nuts-and-bolts” presentations to assist instrumental music educators in starting students properly their instruments. These sessions will also be of great benefit for any teacher in need of a primer for a proven method of achieving success on a wind or percussion instrument.
