  1. Article by Euphoniumist Arthur Lehman: Remembering Bob Hoe

    The great euphonium soloist Arthur Lehman has written a collection of his memories of his life as a performer in The United States Marine Band. One of these, presented here for the first time, has many of Arthur's memories of his relationship with Robert Hoe. Bob Hoe was an amateur brass player, who played cornet and euphonium. Bob was a great fan of Arthur and helped bring to the world Arthur's 2 "The Art of Euphonium Playing" recordings (with books). Bob also produced a series of recording ...
  2. Have the Music Inside You - Then Let It Out!

    We spend so much time discussing horns, mouthpieces, techniques, etc. that sometimes we forget that playing euphonium is ultimately about making music. Playing tuba is ultimately about making music. Playing trombone is ultimately about making music. See where I'm going?

  7. Moving Records and Tapes to CD or MP3

    I have a ton of older recordings that are on LP records or cassette tapes. Often I need to convert some of them to digital format for sharing on the web or to make a CD. There are a few ways to do this.

    My favorite new way is to use the Edirol Portable Digital Recorder, mentioned in a previous post. It is very simple to hook up the recorder to my stereo's line output. Then I just record on the Edirol. When done, I can easily transfer the file to my computer with a USB cable or ...
