  1. Video: Bless This House - Euphonium Duet

    Here is my newest video. Tim Morris and I are playing a duet, my arrangement of "Bless This House." This is from a rehearsal for a church service where the piece became the offertory. Tim is playing the first part, although I wrote the duet so both players have a chance for some of the melody. The recording is a little hampered by the bell angles; Tim is pointing much more toward the mic and I am pointing about 90 degrees from the mic, but the effect is still mostly there. See what you think! ...
  2. Video: Holy Holy Holy, arr. by Philip Sparke - Dave Werden, Euphonium

    Here is a video of a special arrangement of John Dykes' famous hymn "Holy Holy Holy" that we did for church on Sept. 14. This is from Philip Sparke's wonderful book of hymns set in special arrangements. This one is at the end of the book and is the hardest, but it is still not beyond most decent players. Range only goes up to a concert G and no multiple tonguing is required (although it can be used to "spark" thinks up a bit). There are two publications:

    Solo part and accompaniment ...

  5. Euphonium Duet Video - Flower Song - Tim Morris and Dave Werden

    Tim Morris and Dave Werden, euphoniums, and Sara Brunk, piano, performing a duet originally written for sopranos. The duet is from Lakme, by Delibes, arranged for euphoniums and piano by Adam Frey. Tim is playing the first euphonium part.



    Sorry about the lighting, but the sun came around during the recording. Tim and I are not quite so exposed, but poor Sara got really blasted with light.

    The sheet music we used is available from:

  6. 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, ...
  7. 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 ...
  8. 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 ...
