Tuba and Euphonium Workshop

June 15 – June 28, 2014

Ages 14-20

Boston Symphony Orchestra principal tuba Mike Roylance, directs the Tuba/Euphonium Workshop alongside Claude Kashnig.  Through individual attention in daily classes, the workshop addresses the technical and musical aspects of playing the tuba and euphonium.  Each day will be spent working on fundamentals, technique, musicianship, and performance skills.  Master classes offered by the director and guest artists will focus on technique, solo repertoire, orchestral excerpts, and audition preparation.

As an integral part of the workshop, students will be organized into quartets and a tuba/euphonium choir working on standard works as well as new compositions for these instruments.  With the guidance of Mr. Roylance and Mr. Kashnig, weekly performance classes provide opportunities for students to develop and refine their stage presence and audition and recital skills.

The program will conclude with a student solo and ensemble tuba and euphonium workshop recital.
