I purchased this expecting a well organized overview and introduction about most important things to know about the tuba, I thought it would be as good as is the Farkas book for French horn, but it is far from that. Of course it contains a lot of informations, but I did not find many of the answers for the questions I have as a beginner. It's structure lets a lot to wish for too...

Patterned, I think, after Philip Farkas' book entitled "The Art of Brass Playing," this book employs those fundamentals specifically toward the tubist and/or euphoniumist.

Harvey Phillips is a well-respected tubist and pedagogist who has collaborated with William Winkle, another well-respected but perhaps less well-known educator and tubist, to explore and present those facets of essential low brass performance.

Embouchure study, breathing, articulation, along with the physics of each instrument are studied.

For teachers and students alike, this is a valuable resource.

This short book is just as described and its authorship is about as authoratative as they come. Its a bit dated, in that all sorts of innovations have been made in tuba and euphonium design since its writing. I'm only a serious hobbiest, not a professional tubaist, (I am a rabbi by profession,) so the book is just interesting reading for me. Nice and very practical technical advice; reading helped me remember ways to keep a lid on sloppy playing habits I've developed over the years playing in non-demanding community bands and the like. For a one volume, inexpensive book, it's a great value.

If you're a tuba player, you could probably get some use out of this book. Euphonium players would not. Regardless of the idea that the euphonium is a "little tuba", it isn't. There are fundamental differences in approach to each instrument that Harvey Phillips overlooks as he takes to the same school of thought. Euphonium players would be better off getting the Lehman version.
