Aruba Tuba

By Timothy Loest

Concert band - Level .5
Composed by Timothy Loest. Concert Band. FJH Starter Series. Score and set of parts. Duration 1 minute, 20 seconds. Published by The FJH Music Company Inc (FJ.B1290).

Item Number: FJ.B1290

As the title implies, Aruba Tuba captures the spirit of a tropical tuba celebration. If desired, the tuba's close cousin, the baritone, can join the party. Alternate parts are included.
Because Aruba Tuba is a tuba feature, tuba players should be positioned front and center. To establish a solid beat, maracas should be played with alternating up and down wrist strokes, and the claves and cowbell should be held chest high so that their sound projects. Bongos should be mounted and played with rattan sticks, with the smaller drum positioned on the player's right. If bongos are unavailable, timbales, pitched toms, or snare drums with snares off may be used. A simplified snare drum part is also included.
