This specialized workshop for tuba & euphonium players gives students an opportunity to focus on literature and skills specific to their instrument. Campers will work alongside FSU faculty members to study solo and ensemble literature, tone production, technique development, how to practice for maximum effectiveness and how to prepare for an audition. Students will attend master classes and practice sessions. All students practice and perform in a small ensemble. In general, required camp activities take place from 8am-5pm. A sample schedule has been provided below. Due to the short time span of this workshop, there may be some required night activities as well. Students attending this workshop should be prepared to attend fundamental classes, ensemble rehearsals and masterclasses taking place from 7:00-9:30pm. Official schedules are distributed at check-in, but you can click here for a sample evening schedule. For an even more extensive experience, consider combining the Tuba & Euphonium Workshop with our Middle School or High School Band Camp. The individual attention of the workshop combined with large ensemble instruction creates the ideal, well-rounded instructional experience.

It's almost euphonium and tuba time on Long Island again. Each year the Suffolk County Music Educator's Association (SCMEA), sponsors Day of Tuba and Euphonium, formerly known as Howard Hovey Tuba Day, in Howard's memory. As the chairman of this event for the past 31 years, I thought that our readers might be interested in knowing about the event, which is in its 32nd year. Primarily geared toward middle school and high school euphonium and tuba players, we do attract college students, teachers and pros. The event will take place at the Connetquot High School in Bohemia on Friday, Nov. 2 from 3-9:30 pm. This year's guest artist will be internationally renowned euphonium artist and teacher, Dr. Brian Bowman. The afternoon consists of rehearsals and clinics. The pm concert features: the Sunnyland Quartet (trad. jazz with Howard's sons, Art Hovey and Bob Hovey), the All-Star H.S. Tuba Ensemble, Brian Bowman in recital, the LI Tuba Quartet, the Faculty Tuba Ensemble, and the grand finale 300 piece (or more) SCMEA Massed Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble. The concert is free to the public and participation in the event is $15.00 payable to SCMEA. Looking for a horn? Dillon Music will also be on hand displaying their fine instruments and accessories. For more info, contact me or check the SCMEA web site at http://www.scmea.org" target="_blank" target="_blank. You must then click on festivals and scroll through the bar on the left. Check out hundreds of pictures from past HHTD events too. It should be a great day for all involved, and as chairman of this event for the past 32 years, it will be my last, as my wife and I will be moving to Texas soon to be around our kids and grand kids. Don Sherman will assume the chairman responsibilities of the event after this year. Long live SCMEA's DTE !
