  1. Video by Dave Werden: Tico Tico

    Euphonium soloist David Werden and pianist Sara Brunk performing "Tico Tico." This Lewis Buckley arrangement was written originally for tuba marvel Oystein Baadsvik (you would want to specify the "high tuba" version to play it on euphonium).

    We used a medium tempo, which was an interesting experience. I think it fit the piece nicely, but it almost would have been easier to play it more quickly! At this tempo, ...
  2. Video: If I Only Had a Brain - Dave Werden

    Here is the latest in my series of videos that might be called "Songs that Are Easy Enough for Anyone to Play, but Are Good Musical Practice." (I need to work on that title a bit, though!)

    I'm sure most of you will know the song from the classic movie "The Wizard of Oz" where this song is sung by the scarecrow. As with some of the others in this series, the style is lighter than many euphonium players typically attempt. Yet it is a very important side of musical style to develop. And ...
  3. Video - I Know Why and So Do You - Euphonium and Piano

    I just uploaded a new euphonium/piano video to my YouTube channel. In this one we are playing a song that I heard in the movie "The Glenn Miller Story" called "I Know Why (and So Do You)." The series of videos I've been doing lately are partly intended to give players ideas about songs they can perform to help develop style. I've been choosing songs that don't require advanced technique or range, and as such they would be doable by anyone from high school on up. They would be a good way to help ...
  4. Video: Euphonium/Tuba Duet - Bless This House

    On February 10, 2013, it was my great pleasure to perform a euphonium recital at the University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire. My host was the Professor of Tuba at Eau Claire, Dr. Jerry Young, and Dr. Barbara Young was the pianist. It was great fun to be together with the Youngs again, and it seemed like too good an opportunity to not take advantage of having such a fine tubist on the recital with me. Jerry was kind enough to join me in a duet rendition of "Bless this House" (on his Alexander F tuba). ...
  5. Philip Sparke Fantasy for Euphonium - Played by the Man for Whom It Was Written!

    The Fantasy for Euphonium and Brass Band was written in 1979, I believe, and has been played by countless euphoniumists since then. It has also appeared on various contest lists in its piano version.

    Sparke has a knack for writing music that is attractive the audience and a good challenge for the player(s). This particular piece was written for Ian Craddock, soloist with the Yorkshire Imperial Metals Band. I have just added Ian's performance of the Fantasy to my Euphonium Videos page. ...

  6. Derick Kane Video - Star Lake Pep Song

    I added a new video to my Euphonium Videos page. It is quite a lot of fun! It features British Salvation Army euphonium soloist Derick Kane, accompanied by composer Peter Graham. Here is the link (on a page with 614 other great euphonium videos!):
