Rhythmic Etudes for Bass Clef Instruments, Stereograms LETTERS A-M
Introductory Stereograms A-M
Each of the thirteen new etudes which comprise this volume have been edited to be performed on ANY BASS CLEF INSTRUMENT. Each etude begins with a simple theme, which is then ‘rhythmatized’ and then adorned with self accompaniment. The simple themes are at the elementary level, and the rhythmic variations gradually progress from elementary/intermediate to intermediate.

Ideal for those who would like to develop their skill interpreting modern grooves, become familiar with the Stereogram technique or develop their sight-reading. Vital for those with no access to a jazz ensemble. Developed in consultation with noted tenor trombonists, tubists, bassoonists, bassists, and cellists.

“David William Brubeck’s Stereograms A-M represent a wonderful approach to
examining Theme and Variations for younger musicians. By using ‘standard’ melodies, he presents each tune in a form that both the performer and audience can recognize easily before launching into a variation that puts a twist on the melody while still allowing us to sing along in our heads. So often when working with students on variation forms, we have to remind them to find the melody within the more technical passages. By using an embedded bass line as the main thrust of the variations, Brubeck’s Stereograms both allow the melody to be heard throughout and also serve to introduce students to different grooves and rhythmic patterns. I really enjoy practicing and performing both these and the more advanced Stereograms. Bravo!

Stereograms Nos. 1-20 for Solo Tuba!
The availability of Stereograms Nos. 1-20 has extended from the original editions (suitable for bass trombone, euphonium, tenor trombone with ‘f’ attachment, bassoon, cello, or bass), to a special edition for tuba!

Stereograms have been described as “Bobby McFerrin meets the Bach Cello Suites”, and are rhythmic etudes which contain self accompaniment and give the aural illusion of two or three separate parts within a single melodic line.

Carefully transcribed and adapted by Professor Kelly Thomas, of the IMG_6728University of Arizona and his former assistant Will Houchin, these lower voiced Stereograms have been recast into appropriate ranges and keys for tuba and are now available for purchase on-line!

These are the solos featured at the 40th Annual International Tuba and Euphonium Conference at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana where they were introduced by Jim Self and performed by Beth Mitchell, Patrick Nyren, Kelly Thomas and David William Brubeck.

American trombonist and educator Clayton Lehman has e-published these important new contributions to tuba literature as ebooks books from his new locale as a student in China! The links are as follows:
