Some more amazing reviews of Sing, Buzz, Blow, Play are in! Thank you so much to everyone who has bought the book!
Sing, Buzz, Blow, Play is a must own for every tubist! The basic approach every player has to build from at first as it touches on many of the key elements needed to become a successful tubist and brass player. This book has my recommendation, and I look forward to seeing the other versions/keys as it should become a part of every aspiring player’s library. Well done, Mark!

In “Sing, Buzz, Blow, Play” Mark takes the player through the gamut of fundamentals in a clear, efficient, and measured approach. The brilliance of Mark’s book is the simple progression through each stage, allowing the player to reach heights they may not have been able to achieve otherwise. Mark has created a step-by-step guide to excellence in tuba playing that I would readily recommend to novices and pros alike.

Based on tried and tested principles, it covers all the important areas of tuba playing in an approachable way, with interesting studies and excercises that are challenging without being over-complicated. I love the idea of “klangvorstellung” - it’s so important to have￼ a clear idea of what sound you want to make. Open the book at any page and you’ll find an enjoyable workout which can only improve your playing. I’ll be keeping a copy in my tuba case!￼

In the eternal quest for perfection, I strongly believe it is very important to switch our daily routines. Sometimes it is great to go around the fundamental of our instrument while some other times is better to change that drastically. Mark Reynolds’ book will tremendously help at both directions.
