Introduction This textbook for tuba is written in two parts—theoretical and practical. It is composed in the most suc- cinct and concentrated manner to provide methodical advice. Bear in mind that the student should provide the personal initiative to define all the usefulness of our advice. No doubt the student will find in the musical literature many examples similar to those in this book, Having perfected those examples he will be at a great advantage. This is the first independent textbook for tuba in the Russian musical literature. As such, the author had to pay special attention to systematize his advice and to use many examples. There have been no tuba books before in Russia. 1 fee! it is best to work from the methodical point of view. By the way, at the end is an appendix. There you will find practical advice from V.V. Vasiliev, tubist of the Bolshoi Theater Orchestra. This is practical advice from a specialist. Professor V. M. Blazhévich iii
