    Hello all! I joined this site after reading some of the threads about euphonium pieces, in particular some discussion on Pantomime and other Sparke peices. So I have never joined a musical forum before, so I figured why not. Maybe I can meet fellow euphonium players from around the world.
    I am a virtual "student" of David Childs, Dr. Brian Bowman and Steven Meade and many other great performers. I mean this as in: I love to listen to their recordings-and try and learn from their interpretations and styles.
    I have been in 5 US Army Bands and have been playing professionally in the Army Bands for over 11 yrs. I LOVE MY JOB.

    My current instrument is the large bore Sterling Virtuoso Euphonium from Great Britain. My mouthpeice is the BB1 (Brian Bowman). It is a very fine instrument with a wonderful sound. I Have been very happy with it.

    Well thats about all for now. I look forward to reading through this site and learning from others. Take care

    Hi Jeremy, welcome to tmp, I'm sure some of our mini tuba'd friends will be soon sharing their views with you, they are all probably out with their bands at the moment preparing for our regional contests early next month.
    Try and get a posting over here and then you can experience a good old British Brass Band :wink:

    Hi Jeremy, as a fellow 'medical' person ( microbiology in National Health service) and a baritone player, welcome. Interested to know how you combine medical duties and band duties?
