In my 11 years on the road with Boston Brass, I’ve been asked a lot of questions from band directors about the tuba and I finally got an idea. What if someone were to ask all of the best tuba players and teachers in the world about all tuba related subjects? And what if the questions were specifically catered to the needs of band directors? That inspired me to write this book: 'A Band Director's Guide to Everything Tuba: A Collection of Interviews with the Experts'.
Interviews included in this book:
Pat Sheridan on Breathing, Anatomy, and Pedagogy
Sam Pilafian on Improvising, Chamber Music, and Mouthpieces
Dr. Tim Lautzenheiser on Keeping Tuba Students Motivated and Engaged
Dave Porter, Retired US Air Force Band, on his 30 Years as a Private Teacher and Starting Kids on Tuba
Gregory Biba, Middle School Band Director for 25 years, on Tuba Repair
Andy Bove, Recording Engineer and Freelance Tuba Player in New York City, on Recording Tuba and Equipment on Any Budget
Tom Holtz, President's Own Marine Band, on all things Sousaphone
Steve Dillon, owner of Dillon Music, on Tubas, Sousaphones, and Accessories
Kelly Thomas, Tuba/Euphonium Professor at the University of Arizona, on Switching Kids to the Tuba from Other Instruments
