Marty Erickson would like to announce that The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee will have openings for tuba and euphonium students at both Graduate and Undergraduate levels for the 2011-2012 academic year. There are opportunities for undergraduate scholarships, as well as a potential assistantship for a well qualified graduate applicant. Go to http://www4.uwm.edu/psoa/programs/music/admission_audition/ for audition and scholarship applications.
UW-Milwaukee is a campus of about 26,000 and is located on the shores of Lake Michigan, with one of the finest libraries in the world, and access to plenty of cultural events, including the superb Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
Between three concert bands, two symphony orchestras, and several chamber groups (including an actively performing Tuba/Euphonium Quartet and a Graduate Brass Quintet), UWM offers students a great deal of performing opportunities. Go to http://www4.uwm.edu/psoa/programs/music/ for more details about the school.
In addition to private lessons with Mr. Erickson (you will NOT be studying with a graduate assistant for the first few years), there is a weekly Tuba/Euphonium Studio Master Class conducted by Mr. Erickson where we explore various aspects of warm-ups, performance, and pedagogy as well as performing for, and being critiqued by, other students in the studio.
