Mix & Match Fundamentals: Advanced Exercises Playable on BB-flat, CC, E-flat, and F Tuba


Mix & Match Fundamentals by Alex Lapins is suitable for advanced high school through professional tuba players.

Many tubists play both contrabass and bass tubas regularly, and going back and forth between your “big” horn and your “little” horn in this book is a good way to normalize your ability to switch easily between your instruments in performance. Every one of these sixty studies can be played, by an advanced player, on BB-flat, CC, E-flat, or F tuba. Choose one exercise from each chapter to have a well-rounded fundamentals session; choose two or three from each chapter for a more robust session; or choose just one or two studies from this book as you see fit for a quick warm-up—mix and match your own routine!

“This book isn’t just a collection of exercises; it's a guide crafted from years of experience with passion to help you unlock your full potential. I particularly appreciate the ‘choose your own adventure’ approach that Alex provides. I am of the belief that nothing in music should be ‘routine.’ So, rather than playing through this cover to cover, choose an item or two à la carte from each chapter and curate a warm-up based on your needs for that day, week, month, or beyond.” - Matt Hightower, Assistant Professor of Tuba & Euphonium, Florida State University; Principal Tuba, Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra

"The word 'fun' exists in fundamentals for a reason, and Dr. Lapins has certainly captured this in his creation. I'm thrilled to add this to my own library and I know you will be too. Let's all take our skill set to the next level and enjoy the journey along the way! Thank you, Dr. Lapins, for this incredible contribution to the tuba community." - Dr. Richard Antoine White, President, RawTuba Foundation; Professor of Tuba/Euphonium, University of New Mexico; Principal Tuba, New Mexico Philharmonic and Santa Fe Symphony
