In Reply to: Going from tuba To trumpet?? posted by Paul B on December 02, 1998 at 11:06:43:
I started out on euphonium, experimented with horn and trumpet, and finally was convinced by my high school band director to switch to tuba (it was a great move, I'm happy to say). My personal experience has been that I had to pick one to practice for an extended period of time in order to develop a good embouchure. I would say make up your mind quickly. Holding out as euphonium player has cost me a lot of disappointing practice sessions (and missed notes) as a tuba player because I just couldn't use the same embouchure for both. Go with the one that is the most enjoyable for you.
