We have a convenient page listing several fine arrangements of holiday music for tuba quartet (usually 2 euphoniums and 2 tubas). You'll find novelty titles like "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch" and more traditional favorites such as "We Wish You a Merry Christmas." There is also a march-book-size collection of Christmas songs to use for carolling, and a Chanukah Medley.
Christmas and Holiday Music for Euphonium-Tuba Quartet
We have just built a new store especially for tuba and euphonium players (or gift givers). You can find a carefully-chosen collection including CD's, books, videos, clothing (with tuba or euphonium themes), instruments, mouthpieces, accessories, oil, polish, and cleaning supplies. There are also items for any musician such as metronomes, electronic chromatic tuners, recording gear, audio software, and music and band magazines. You can browse or search this collection, and your purchases are secured
Here is another free download of Christmas music, this time from The United States Air Force Band. This is one of the finest concert bands in the world, and the selection if from their album of holiday music titled Light One Candle. It features their chorus, the Singing Sergeants and four of their soloists.
Take Me Home For Christmas
Many euphoniums and tubas that have a 3+1 valve setup (where the 4th valve is played with the left hand) have a locking mechanism for the 4th valve to keep it down while it is in the case. I have seen these adjusted so that they hold the valve down too tightly. If that is the case, the felt pad under the valve button becomes compressed after just a short time. Then, when you press the valve down hard while playing, you get a metallic sound because the felt is no longer resilient enough.
We have a free MP3 music file available of the song "Christmas in the Islands" performed by The United States Navy Band. This selection is from their album titled "Happy Holidays." The arrangement was written by MUC Christopher W. Erbe & MUC W. Scott Ragsdale.
