Tuba lesson

I made the wee mistake of saying to a very serious friend who happens to play tuba in a symphony orchestra, "How hard can it be to get an oompah out of that thing?"

First there was a breath test: I had to blow one of those little balls aloft long enough to be graced with a tutorial.

Then there was the music & the notes & the breathing out-breathing in. I think he was a little disappointed when I actually hit the note he asked me to. I was supposed to pass out, I think. And then, to his better credit, he was a little disappointed that I was finished.
