The Tuba is the instrument that produces the lowest pitched notes and is very popular for its big size. Just like with the other brass instruments, yhe first challenge you have to overcome with the horn is the buzzing, the technique of producing a controlled sound through lips vibration. You will become better each day, at the same time your fingers get used to the way pistons work. Listen to the sound of the horn:
The Tuba music sheets are in the bass clef, although the notes we listen from the tuba are an octave lower than the written ones. Among the tuba family you will find the Tenor, Bass and Contrabass Tubas. A musician who plays the horn will easily play other brass instruments (with a similar mouthpiece) such as the Trumpet, the Trombone, the Horn, the Bombardier and the Sousaphone.
You can start learning the trumpet with a tuba from the Cascais Music School. Check for more information at our Shop.
