    Private Lessons - Tuba

Private lessons are available in all areas of music and speech instruction for all ages and levels of development by highly qualified professional teachers and performers with real-life musical experience.

About the Tuba

A tuba is a brass instrument characterized by its large size and deep sound.

It consists of vertically coiled tubing, three or four valves, a wide conical bore, flared bell, and a cup-shaped mouthpiece. The different segments of the tuba are shaped and bent from machinable brass using standard techniques. The pieces are then soldered together to complete the instrument. First built in the early nineteenth century, the tuba was invented to provide a bass sound in brass ensembles.
