This is the only edition of the Kopprasch Opus 5 Etudes ever published for tuba. Originally for high horn, this book is essential for tubists.
The foundation for good technique is acquired by mastering these studies. Dr Jerry Young gives detailed instructions for every etude. This collection becomes even more meaningful by applying Dr. Young's important comments.

Bravo on the new book Sixty Etudes for Tuba Op. 5 by Dr Jerry Young! This is a welcome addition to my library and I will highly recommend to all students. It is particularly useful to my advanced Eb and F tuba students. Dr. Young s comments are right on the money!
These studies fill a gap that has been empty for too long. There are at least two benefits: New technique-building material to sight-read and to practice, and exercises in a higher register than the old Kopprasch Op.6 Etudes. These are not high tessitura studies, though. They will build technique in the upper middle register, and also provide solid material for the student working on the Eb or F tuba. That said, they can be used for practising "pitch security" on the CC or Bb tuba, too.
