Lip Slurs for Tuba

by Deanna Swoboda. ISBN 978-1-57463-130-2; $14.95. Until now, there has not been a bass clef tuba book entirely dedicated to the lip slur. Lip slurs are specific exercises designed to develop flexibility and are essential in building strength and developing technique.  This collection of lip slurs, offering exercises for multiple stages of ability and development, serves both young tuba students and more advanced players. It will surely improve the playing of all tuba players!


“This collection of tuba-specific exercises is a valuable addition to any tubist’s library.”

Carol Jantsch, Principal Tuba, Philadelphia Orchestra

“Provides a pedagogically sound guide and exercises that can be used at ALL levels.”
