Abstract Title

Low Register Studies

Abstract

This project was created to develop a method book written for tubists to develop their low register as an extension of their mid-register. The low register for the tuba is the most widely recognized aspect of orchestral tuba playing, such as in Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries and Respighi’s Pines of Rome. There is, however, a deficit in method books for tuba players to develop their low register. The few books targeting low register, unfortunately, were originally for other instruments and/or written by non-tubists.
