3:00PM - The Modern Tuba, with Bill Muter

The tuba was the first bass instrument in jazz music and is currently undergoing a renaissance and reemergence in not only jazz but modern music. The “Modern Tuba” is an interactive masterclass where students are invited to join the bandstand and play with a group of world class musicians to learn the in’s and out’s of what it takes to “hang” in this type of environment. We work on bass lines, groove, articulation, sound and most importantly the student’s perception of all of these concepts.

We also discuss alternate ways to practice and interpret popular brass books like Melodious Etudes, Arban, Blazevich and more. The intent is to help students expand upon their current classical training to make them marketable to even more playing environments.
