Please post your reasons for playing.

I just realised that I was playing for all the wrong reasons
I was playing because I wanted to be beter than everybody else
if I didnt play my part perfect I would get mad. now
I play for the fun of it and if I dont get my part perfect it
gives me something to work on the next day now I dont
want to be the best I just want to learn how to get better

I play tuba because I liked jazz trombone better than concert band stuff and before I started playing tuba the tuba section consisted of one stuck up string bassist.

BASS! I like playing tuba because it's the bass base of the band! I thought it was cool when I got to play trombone in jazz band, then my band director let me play tuba for marching band. It was the sweetest thing ever.

I don't specifically enjoy solo music for the tuba (although there are a few gems out there - Hall of the Mountain King, March of a Marionette etc. sound great on a tuba), but some tuba parts are pretty awesome - The concert band arrangement of Mission Impossible or even the Blues Brothers Revue (a medley) thats when the tuba gets into a class of its own.

Althogh if I was ever to play Ride of the Valkyries or a good arrangment of Mars (I've played an awful arrangment) that would be awesome.

Some solo music is "interesting" such as "Encounters for tuba." Not my favorite. But there are a bunch of classical pieces that have been transcribed for tuba such as "Sonata no. 3" by Vivaldi. And some others by Handel and Mozart, great stuff!!!

I make music for pure enjoyment. Music is my life, whether I'm playing my tuba, Laying down a smooth line on my bass, or writing with my acoustic. Music is one of the few things that you can make your own, and do what you want with. You can make music sound how you want it too, you can interpret music however you see fit. It's such a personal thing, and it's something that can never be taken.

I just started tuba yesterday. I'll play sousaphone for marching band, and bassoon for concert. I love music because its fun and their are so many opportunities to join ensembles and make music with others. Tuba and sousaphone are more of a hobby. Obviously I'll never be the best but thats just fine with me. I'm not super competive cause their isn't much at school to compete against with bassoon. I'll just focus on not being the worst. lol. Music is part of my identity. Without I wouldn't be me.
