You've gotten some excellent replies on this subject from some excellent players. Besides listening to and learning from this other tubist you've encountered, I'd just like to send you this idea. When communicating artistic ideas with your instrument, do so with intensity, regardless of the volume. This takes time and work, but the rewards are great. I'll be forever indebted to Mr. Eugene Pokorny for a lesson several years ago where we dealt with playing with intensity- being an engaging storyteller with one's instrument. Volume will probably take care of itself. Good Luck!
