I am looking for some talented tubists and euphonists to start studying at the University of Puget Sound in the fall. http://www.pugetsound.edu
Puget Sound offers a serious musical environment in the heart of a premier liberal arts college. It is my personal feeling that we have a combination that makes us very unique in the west: a national liberal arts school with an accomplished music faculty with extensive academic and performance backgrounds. I feel that we have a great environment for both non-music majors and music majors and minors. Recent alumni (“non-majors”) of my studio are pursuing studies in Law School and Dental School. The University has much to offer! On the musical front, our students have earned recognition in Regional and National Competitions and received invitations to perform from ITEA. Many of our alumni are successful band directors. Our tuba alumni have successful performing careers and hold University positions.
If you are interested in a music education degree, not only are you assured of a great education, but of having the opportunity to earn a Master of the Arts in Teaching (“MAT”) and to be teacher certified in only five years. (At many schools, in my opinion, it is hard to finish a Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education in five years.) Our small class size makes it much easier to get the courses you need when you need them.
While our campus is beautiful and full of old growth trees, we are located very near Interstate-5. A variety of performance venues in a number of cities are nearby. Puget Sound has the feel of an isolated campus in the forest while being in the heart of the Seattle-Tacoma metropolitan area. I feel this makes us very unique when compared to other National liberal arts colleges with music programs. There are numerous opportunities to perform.
I am interested in any serious student of the euphonium or tuba. While our admission standards are high, I am willing to assist any qualified “low brasser” with the admissions process. Financial aid and scholarships are available: http://www.pugetsound.edu/academics/dep ... olarships/"
If you are interested, I encourage you to write to email@example.com . This will enable us to get the information you need to make a more informed decision about what we have to offer.
