EUPHONIUM

ABOUT THE EUPHONIUM: 

 

The euphonium (you-PHONE-knee-yum) is sometimes known as the baritone. It is a member of the brass family and looks like a small version of a tuba. Its sound is similar to that of a trombone, but it uses valves (like trumpet) instead of a slide (like trombone).

 


PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

 

Euphonium players should have moderately full lips, but not too full. A SLIGHT overbite is okay, but an underbite would hinder a good sound. The euphonium requires a medium- sized hand span to reach the valves and students should have an above average lung capacity.

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: 

 

Students with an above average amount of orthodontia will find the mouthpiece of the euphonium a bit more comfortable than trumpet or French Horn. Hughes provides euphoniums for students at a cost of $50 rental for an entire school year.
