TUBA

ABOUT THE TUBA: 

 

The tuba is the largest instrument in the band and many would believe would be hard to physically manage. The tubas we use for beginners are ¾ size and easy to handle. Tubas are the "bass line" of the band and extremely important!!

 


PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS:

 

Tuba players need to have full lips and a large lung capacity. The size of the student doesn't matter as much as you would think because we have tuba stands to help students when playing. 

OTHER CONSIDERATIONS: 

 

The tuba provides the musical foundation for the band and requires players that are self-motivated over-achievers. Students with a history of academic trouble should not consider tuba as we rely heavily on the ability of the tuba players to consistently maintain good grades and remain UIL eligible. Hughes provides tubas for students at a cost of $50 for an entire school year.
