Tuba

The tuba is the largest and lowest pitched musical instrument in the brass family. Instruments in the brass family produces music by moving air past the lips, allowing the air to vibrate or "buzz" into a large cupped mouthpiece. 



The tuba first appeared in the 19th century. It is one of the newer instruments in the modern orchestra and concert band. An orchestra normally has a single tuba in occasions though there may be 2. The tuba helps reinforce the bass voices of the strings and woodwinds. It also provides the bass of the orchestra. Tubas are widely used in marching bands, drum and bugle corps and in jazz bands.
