I could never figure out why any kid would want to learn how to play a tuba let alone play in the marching band with it.......

Well, to me, saxophone always felt like ‘work’. So tuba and bass trombone were ‘fun’. That’s why. A lot of people I marched Drum Corps with were woodwind players who decided to learn brass because it was fun. Especially marching with one of the top Drum & Bugle Corps in the world.

Haha! Yes, I know. Thanks!

Just played it for my wife, introducing it as a beautiful Christmas piece.

(I was properly scolded...)

Merry Christmas!

In high school, I played the baritone horn in our marching band, and we played one tune for which I wished I could have had a tuba. Our alma mater, which we played after football games, assemblies, etc. had no baritone horn part, so I had to play the bass, or tuba part. Most of the notes in the piece were below the baritone horn's normal range, and one, a "C" two octaves below "middle C," was at its extreme range, but I always managed to play it.

Incidentally, my school, Whittier High School in Whittier, Calif. has a great alma mater, set to the tune of the popular hit song Yankee Rose.
