Day One Clinic - Tuba/Euphonium

Clinic Synopsis:

DAY ONE clinics are intended to be short, content-rich, “nuts-and-bolts” presentations to assist instrumental music educators in starting students properly on their instruments. These sessions will also be of great benefit for any teacher in need of a primer for proven methods of achieving success. Day one clinics are presented by master teachers who have demonstrated a high degree of success in providing sound pedagogical methods for teaching beginning students, or in assisting more advanced students who may have developed bad habits detrimental to producing characteristic tone and/or habits detrimental to technical mastery. Day One clinics will take place in an intimate and personal space so that each attendee may enjoy a close view of demonstrated techniques.
