Ridgewood NJ, soprano Kristen Plumley says we have shortage of tuba players . The tuba shortage is so severe she have decide to take up tuba lessons herself and share her adventure on videos.
The tuba is the lowest-pitched musical instrument in the brass family. As with all brass instruments, the sound is produced by lip vibration, or a buzz, into a mouthpiece. It first appeared in the mid-19th century, making it one of the newer instruments in the modern orchestra and concert band.
For further inspiration Jim Clark an entrepreneur and computer scientist, who founded several notable Silicon Valley technology companies, including Silicon Graphics, Inc., Netscape Communications Corporation, myCFO, and Healtheon was also inspired at one time to play tuba . How far he got with that inspiration we do not know.
