I've been told I have brass.

A lot of it.

But, back to Tubas.

Tuba or not Tuba ...Thunderboy's current dilemma. They have a lot of baritone/euphonium players but a dearth of Tubophonists. If he sticks with the bari, he might make it up to the next band for his senior year (unlikely imo because band teacher hates him). If he changes to Tuba, he's stuck at the lower level, but I think he'd enjoy it and maybe be less bored and distracted and his band teacher might like him more....

There is something splendid about being the bass/base of the band. I don’t have a full grasp of US band orchestration, but unless you are lead euph or bari you’re kind of one of the chorus I expect. Bass (tuba) is a better instrument for someone who is more of an individualist, less likely to seek out the “safety in numbers” thing. Feel free to ask questions, or contact me directly for further discussion.

Why is he considering moving to tuba? Has he been asked to? Does he want to be promoted to senior band for the kudos? Which band will have most of his band buddies in?

They need Tubas. He likes to be needed. He likes making deep noises. And big instruments. I'm really not sure. At this point, it's not a battle worth me getting involved with. Although not sure battle is the appropriate word...

It is nice to be needed. And to make deep noises. Carrying (and storing) big instruments not so much, but YMMV.
Why the hell not, eh?

ah well there's the beauty. They don't have to take them home or store them in the main. Big instruments are left at school. Because they play every day in class, they are not expected to practice in the evenings. Or own their own instruments. Only during summer did we have two baritones in the house (Marching and concert)
