I've had great success with flute players going over to tuba. Sell it!
I left a job I loved for the last several years and took over a program that has lost it's sousaphone section for various reasons. There aren't that many low brass players that I feel we can just shoot people over (plus I haven't met the kids yet to see if any are willing) so I'm thinking my 50-55 piece band will have no bottom this year. Should I just balance what's there and recruit for concert season or should I really be concerned? This band isn't going to be competing at state and I feel like it's going to be a year of just getting the train back on the tracks.
