Re: Beginning Tuba
Have him make a natural face then blow onto his finger the. Same thing through the tuba. Gradually bring the lips together until a sound comes out. No lips rolling in-lips stay flat against the teeth.
Be VERY patience. It might take 5-10 tries but it will likely be at least at Bb (in the staff) or lower.
Not being snarky: if he has trouble playing low maybe tuba isnít the best choice?
