    In an Allstate Mayhem commercial, the person representing Mayhem sits on a couch next to an upright euphonium on the couch with him. The commercial's theme was a family of over-sharing social media...

    I certainly don't think that is too fast. I think the most important thing to keep in mind is your stylistic approach. Big enough deviations aren't always well-received, most especially in audition...

    High Range?

    Practicing a trumpet will eventually have a negative effect on your tone. I had a professor who could always tell I picked up a trumpet during the week before my lessons. It does thin things out....

    Most memorable euphonium performance?

    Warumtobendieheiden, I love that last story.

    My most memorable performance wasn't what most would take as a performance at all. Steve Mead visited my university. We had a great selection of...

  8. Preformance Oppurtunities for Euphonium, Outside of The Military

    For kicks, I play in downtown Minneapolis from time-to-time for tips. What I hear the most out of people stopping to listen is, "What's that?" I think that describes the demand for euphoniums pretty...

    MPC Buzz is Dead

    I have to agree on all accounts except taking a mouthpiece on a roadtrip. I would much rather listen to the radio.

    A lot comes to play regarding one's own experience with a mouthpiece. In seminar...

    Ways to Help Struggling Public School Budgets

    I think that a lot of smaller school systems fall into this category even before cuts. I learned music through band immersion from my school. I learned C, D, F, E, G, and A from a trumpet book before...

    Weril 4-Valve Euphonium

    My ex played a Weril. I remember the valves on it were always problematic. It's not a bad horn per se. It fit in well in community bands where there were solo lines for arrangements of Duke Ellington...

    mouthpiece causing unnatural sharpness?

  17. Seeking short, witty and charming piece to show off my double-bell euphonium
