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.
