Hi everyone! As a transplant here in the UK (from the USA), I'm just starting to teach some beginning brass players, and am not sure about what method books to use, what clef to start them on, etc. Specifically- do most school band directors here use the Jock McKenzie books? Any other "standard" methods? Do most people start trombone/baritone/tuba players on bass clef? Not sure what to do here....in the US all low brass students play bass clef. Only need to know treble if you play in a brass band, which most people don't! But over here.... Also- do you start bass players on BBb or Eb tubas? I would probably start them on BBb, but maybe that's too big for a 12 year old? Sorry for all the questions.....I'm actually a strings teacher!!! Thanks for any input you can give- thought I'd ask the experts!!!!
