Low Brass, High Standards by Jeff Barbee and George Palton
Through research driven pedagogy, our goal is to improve tuba and euphonium instruction at every developmental level.
- Low Brass High Standards will present a virtual clinic at the Illinois Music Education Association Spring Webinar Series on March 23, 2021 at 7pm CST. Previously, LBHS presented a clinic at the 2020 Ohio Music Education Association Professional Development Conference where Barbee and Palton discussed their research regarding low brass methods courses.
- The Four Horsemen Tuba/Euphonium Quartet performed at the Indiana Music Education Association 2020 Professional Development Conference.

- Our research includes a survey of nearly 700 Music Educators throughout the United States with a goal of comparing the confidence of teaching the tuba and euphonium to other mitigating factors. With our findings, we will offer program planning strategies, methods to bolster pedagogical approaches, and suggestions to improve teacher education curriculum; provide access to instructional resources; and publish data to assist with decision making and advocacy.
