The role of the tuba in the modern musical world is changing drastically. Due to this sweeping change, both students and teachers have been left unprepared, and sometimes unmotivated, to pursue college-level study of tuba performance. The relatively sparse, but growing, body of literature (pedagogical and musical) that exists for the instrument, in addition to the notion that the tuba is not as musically capable as other instruments, has compounded the problem. A guide or roadmap of sorts will be provided to the student in this project report—in what I hope will be the beginning of a rewarding journey in the study and refinement of the art of tuba-playing. This paper will provide the student (and teacher) with the information necessary to seriously pursue a college education in the performance of the tuba. The listed resources in the form of method books, discography, and repertory list will assist in preparing the student for college-level tuba study.
