Default Tuba players. Any out there? Sousaphone?

Hey, I'm new to this forum and thought I might introduce my self.

I'm Sam and I'm a high school senior that plays the Sousaphone. I play the tuba for many different bands, including jazz band, marching band, and Show band. If you don't know what show band is, it's basically a cover band for pop/rock/hip-hop songs. If you wondering what a tuba player is doing in a pop/rock/hip-hop band i'll tell you; I'm playing the bass parts because I could outplay all the bass guitarist at my high school. I've been doing all of that for four years know.

I also play the trumpet, trombone, baritone, and drum set.

Any other low brass players out there?

I'm not a tuba player, but I am a music major and part of my program was to learn some other instruments. I did tuba for part of my brass methods class and I learned it pretty well. I got bored with the parts though - I am a flute player so you can see why . A good friend of mine is a tuba player and she is really good at it.

You're lucky to do marching band! They are rare in universities and non existant in high school here, unfortunately.

I am a freshman in college. I don't play tuba anymore, but I played for 7 years throughout middle school and in high school! I was part of a very prestigious Texas 5A high school band so it was a great experience for me. I still have my mouthpieces so I could probably pick up playing again if I wanted to.

You're right, In four years at my high school I am still the newest tuba player, and the only one. It's sad because know body wants to do it. At leastI'm graduating soon, I hope to major in music (Jazz concentration) at LSU.

I don‘t play the tuba but I really want to learn how to play it. It is kinda undestimated (like most bass instruments), but I truly believe that without it the orchestra would lose its touch.

I used to play trombone, but I have switched to tuba. I have been playing for awhile now. I see that you are a good tuba player. I am also in jazz band as well as concert band and wind ensemble.
