The famous Brandt 34 Studies (originally for trumpet) are now available for tuba. These brilliant studies are among the best for developing a solid bravura-style technique.
Emphasis on exact rhythm, precise multiple-tonguing and flexible technique make this book important to tubists.
Many of these studies are based on passages from famous orchestral works such as the Ride of the Valkyries (and others). Most studies can be performed on both low and high tubas. Spiral bound.

Like everything Wes does at Encore this is a valuable addition to the tuba literature. I have long admired the trumpet version of the Brandt Studies but now see how important it is for learning to play fanfare-like brass music that trumpeters need to know, Bravo!
I have owned and used the trumpet version of this book for years. Great studies. It is fantastic to see the etudes in bass clef, some breathing suggestions and the excellent text by Mr. Jacobs. This is a winner.
