Wesley Jacobs has arranged the famous Brandt 34 Studies, originally composed for trumpet, for tuba. These brilliant studies are highly effective for developing a solid, bravura-style technique.
The book places great emphasis on exact rhythm, precise multiple-tonguing, and flexible technique, making it a valuable resource for tubists seeking to improve their technique.
Many of the studies are based on passages from famous orchestral works, such as the Ride of the Valkyries and others. Additionally, most of the studies can be performed on both low and high tubas, making the book versatile for players of different skill levels.

Brandt Studies for Tuba
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.
