You may not like the style but there are some showband clips out there that might get them pumped. Stick with the big name colleges or local colleges depending on where you are. If Show isn't your style you can still use the energy. |
Also, plenty of good stuff out there on the tube with some of the big D1 marching bands featuring low brass and even some pretty good DCI stuff if you can find their parking lot warm ups and what not. Just find a way to show the quirkiness and energy and life of the party that is the average low brass member, (at least all of them I know are pretty awesome but not someone you bring home to meet the parents on the first date if you know what I mean)....
And if you are targeting specific kids go after the ones struggling with range on the smaller mouthpiece. Maybe the larger MP will give them a little more room to be able to develop an embouchure, (also found that to be true in my experiences).
