I've sat on over 25 military band audition committees at the Naval Academy for all instruments. I've been on tuba mock audition panels with members of The Army Field Band, The Marine Band, The United States Navy Band, The Coast Guard Band, and The United States Military Academy Band. I know what I'm looking for and I also know what they're looking for in potential hires. It's my hope that this page could help people preparing for a career in military music. There are well over 100 jobs for tuba players in the military today--go get one!
Be sure to check back here periodically or follow my Twitter (@jwtuba) for updates. I'll be adding videos, pdf's of tuba parts, and commentary on the standard literature as my schedule allows.
