The Tuba Family
by Clifford Bevan

expanded from the original 1978 edition of 303 pages
to the 2000 2nd edition of 640 pages including a 33 page index

ISBN 1 872203 30 2.

 

Comprehensive in its scope but eminently readable, the second edition of The Tuba Family is a book I refer to at least once a week; it never ceases to inform, amuse and inspire.

Douglas Yeo, Bass Trombone,
Serpent, Ophicleide, Boston Symphony Orchestra


Dr. Bevan writes beautifully . . . This is a book safe to recommend even to the uninitiated and a must for tuba students everywhere.

Andrew Pinnock, Galpin Society Journal


The first edition of The Tuba Family was the most important reference work on the history of bass brass instruments. Clifford Bevan's work in the second edition has exponentially upgraded that status. This volume is friendly to readers of all ages and levels of experience and an indispensable item in any enthusiast's or professional's library.

Jerry Young, former editor, ITEA Journal; Professor of Music, The University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire

a veritable wealth of information on every aspect of the tuba, its variants and its predecessors . . .

Paul Schmidt, ITEA Journal

Academic scholarship for tuba and euphonium is a serious business. The Tuba Family serves as the authoritative reference for teaching and pedagogy, instrument design, orchestration and instrumentation. This book isn't important; it is essential.

Ronald Davis, Former Historian, International Tuba/Euphonium Association; Professor of Music, University of South Carolina

ISBN 1 872203 30 2. 640 pp. Free descriptive leaflet available.
