Tuba Warm-Ups (for Bb Tuba)

Please Note: These Warm-ups are not of my creation, but instead are a compilation of ideas from various tuba players I have
encountered over the years. I have put them into an order that makes the most sense to me. Warm-ups should be introduced
as soon as the player can maintain the tone, and should be the most important thing done daily. All exercises should be
practiced at q = 60 unless otherwise indicated.
