It is one of brass instruments with a big mouth piece where air flows through the instrument. The Tuba is an accompaniment instrument, but can sometimes though not so often improvise.
The lips are vibrated to make sound, and it has three valves which are used to change the pitch, which ranges from low to medium. To learn this instrument, it requires interpretative ability and willingness to practice. At IMLS we provide one on one individual lessons for easy progress and learning capability.
Tuba students at the IMLS also play in the Brass Band. Thereby they learn to play music together and how to work on a piece in a group.
