UGA Tuba Assistantship

Postby David Zerkel » Tue Nov 05, 2019 2:36 pm


My current Tuba TA Joseph Guimaraes will not be returning to school next year as a result of his winning the position in the US Navy Band in Washington, DC. So, there will indeed be a funded Tuba TA at UGA beginning in Fall 2020. The primary duties are performing in the graduate brass quintet (coached by Phil Smith), helping with teaching if I am away from campus, and performing in large ensembles. The assistantship includes a full tuition waiver and a generous stipend. The priority deadline for Graduate applications is December 1, so time is of the essence. Pre-screening requirements can be found here: ... repertoire

Live auditions will take place in Athens on January 11 and 25, 2020. It is likely that about 6 candidates will be invited for a live audition.

Please e-mail me at if you have any questions.
