What the Critics Say

"Andrew Hitz's Band Director's Guide to Everything Tuba is a must-read for band directors of all experience levels working with every age of student. Even the most experienced educators will find the text pedagogically groundbreaking; challenging some of our most basic assumptions and forcing us to approach our teaching in ways different than the way we were taught. This valuable resource demystifies the tuba in a way that no instrumental methods course could hope to approach and I look forward to reading future volumes in this outstanding series." (Chip de Stefano, band director at McCracken Middle School in Skokie, IL, and member of the board of directors of the National Band Association)

Even more than the written version

This book just blew by. I was done before I realized I even got there. I love the extra "off script" moments, and he's always clear when those are. This is truly an excellent resource for anyone band/tuba involved.
