Select language: | |'s Power Lessons were originally organized and provided by Deanna Swoboda (Professor of Tuba/Euphonium, Arizona State University). Currently, the project is headed by Steve Darling (Cincinnati, Ohio). If you'd like to contribute a video, please do by contacting Steve at

ITEA would like to thank the tuba and euphonium professionals who have contributed and those who will contribute to this project. Thank you for your time and your inspirations!

Each power lesson should be between 5-10 minutes in length, unedited, and presented in real time. Periodically you will meet another Pro who will talk about and/or demonstrate a subject designed to help improve your practicing and playing.

We hope you'll visit the website frequently to view the newest "Power Lesson!"
