Tuba/Euphonium Lessons

Designed for youth and adults ages 11+ who want to improve their skills to succeed well in District/State competitions as well as within their school.

My lessons focus on the foundation of playing the tuba/euphonium. By focusing on proper breathing, tone quality, active listening, and instrument care, students will be able to interpret music in their own voice. Students will also utilize these skills by performing high-level repertoire that is used for collegiate auditions.
