Mastering the Tuba Backing Tracks
***First and foremost, these exercises can be found in Roger Bobo's Mastering the Tuba. If you do not already own the book then I highly recommend purchasing the book and adding exercises into your daily fundamentals practice.***
These backing tracks were originally created as a way of spicing up my fundamentals practice and giving myself a rhythmically interesting metronome [ie. cool lofi beat] and harmonically interesting drone to play along with. Eventually, I began using these play-along tracks in my private lessons, sectionals, and masterclasses, and discovered that students really liked them. If you're looking for a way to stay engaged while practicing or help students stay engaged with their fundamentals practice then try these out. You can find play-along videos in a variety of keys on my YouTube channel (and on this page) and the backing tracks (with .pdf's) are also available for purchase using the links below.
