Daily Routines for CC Tuba by Philip Sinder is suitable for advanced high school through professional tuba players.
Daily Routines for Tuba is a comprehensive way to ensure that you practice all your fundamental tuba skills every day. Practicing fundamentals is the most important practice session of your day because when your fundamental skills improve, everything you play gets better. Daily Routines contains nine routines: Basic Routines 1 and 2; Easy; Articulation; Flexibility and Accuracy; Valve Dexterity; Lyrical; Duet and Intonation; and Euphonium and Tuba Duet. Each routine is further divided into nine skill categories: long tones and easy patterns; crescendo and diminuendo; articulation; low and resonant playing; lip slurs; finger focus; subito dynamic changes; scales/intervals/arpeggios; and high and low range expansion. By combining the nine skill categories with each routine, Daily Routines assures that all of your fundamental skills will improve equally over time.
"Without a doubt, a strong fundamental routine, not simply a 'warm-up' routine, will carry your playing across the finish line, and this book has it spelled out with clarity." - Mike W. Roylance, Principal Tuba, Boston Symphony Orchestra; Faculty member at: Boston University, New England Conservatory of Music, and Tanglewood Music Center; Director, Boston University Tanglewood Institute’s Tuba and Euphonium workshop
“Comprehensive yet concise, perfect for warm-up as well as next-level achievement, these well-crafted routines bring Professor Sinder's pedagogical expertise to tuba students of all levels. As one who loves to pick and choose and invent exercises, I'm grateful for the treasure trove of ideas in this book! I immediately circled thirty favorites that I'm excited to incorporate into my own practice and teaching.” - Dr. Kent Eshelman, Professor of Music, Baylor University
"This book introduces nine well-balanced routines. Just like a balanced daily diet improves your health, I’m sure that daily practice with the balanced routines in this book will improve your playing." - Ryoichi Tamaki, Tuba, Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, Japan
