Whilst I was at school and indeed sixth form college I learnt alot on music theory through classroom lessons and extra lessons on Tuba. Now I haven't really practised the theory conciously for many years even though I have been playing so what music books could be recommended to me?
So last night was our band rehearsal, and I really struggled to get into it for a number of reasons
1, There was lots of stopping rather than playing a piece through and then looking at the detail

He has made such a difference to me in such a short time and we have become good friends as well.:D
Our band is off to tour USA & Canada next October and I would like to do Celestial Morn by Leslie Condon, it's a cracking solo and probably one of my favourites. I also have a soft spot for the Andrew Mackereth arrangement of Swing Low.
So what are other tuba players favourite solo pieces?
I'm just getting over man flu and thought it would be a good idea to give the tuba a bath, you know germs and all that.
I am in the habit of shoving water through it every couple of months to keep the grot out however a got hot bath really got things moving, disgusting i know but I was...
I have recently bought a new Bach 24 AW off Ebay. The chap I bought it off is also selling a tuba mouthpiece 24AW which he describes as a Vincent Bach which is now made by Besson.

Whilst it's early days he has helped boost my confidence already...
