- 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.
