Norlan Bewley's Tuba Tips for Tuba music students

online music storeThe online music store is a recent addition to the website, offering Mp3s, sheet music and compositions for the tuba in the low brass ensemble format. While designed for the Low Brass Ensemble (trombone 1 and 2, euphonium, and tuba), the pieces are also fun as a play-along for the tuba or to start your own Low Brass Ensemble.

The music also works great as a feature for your Marching Band low brass section!

TUBA PERFORMANCE MUSIC RESOURCES FOR PLAYERS, STUDENTS, BAND & ORCHESTRA DIRECTORS

Norlan Bewley Tuba Music Resources"The tuba is a member of the low brass family of musical instruments that encompasses the trombone, euphonium, and tuba. As the artistic performance of these three instruments share much common ground, you'll find some cross-over of tips, advice, and music resources.

It is my intent to build here a comprehensive library of articles, tips, and resources for the tuba and low brass artist, teacher, and student. If you'd like to help with this mission, send me your recommendations on the kind of material you'd like to see here.

Contact me at: nbewley@woh.rr.com

Several resources are oriented towards the student and player: history of the tuba, choosing the right tuba for you, tips for tuba students and so on. Other articles and resources help both students and established players develop their mastery of the instrument and further enjoy their performance.

May these resources assist everyone involved and interested in Low Brass improve their musical performance, skills, and opportunities."
