"An Approach to Standardizing Pedagogy for Extended Techniques on Tuba"
By Sean M. Kennedy
A Document In Tuba Performance
ABSTRACT by Sean Kennedy :
The purpose of this document is to examine and attempt to standardize a pedagogical method for extended techniques for the tuba. This document will pull from various source materials including repertoire for the tuba and an examination of various documents on extended techniques for other instruments.
This document will include common existing extended techniques for the tuba and will attempt to introduce new extended techniques that can be adapted for the tuba. Each technique will be described from a proposed sound concept. Notational examples from the repertoire will be included to aid in understanding the function of the sound concept.
