I am a strong amateur BBb player, and have the opportunity to play Eb tuba with an established British brass band in my area. They are eager for me to sit in with them, but I understand that the music is all written in treble clef. It sounds like a lot of fun, but I have some anxiety about learning the Eb and reading treble clef. I am looking for information/comments about fingerings and what kind of challenge I can expect in making this transition. Thanks in advance. All help is appreciated.
