Provincetown Rock Solo for Tuba and Piano
Provincetown Rock is a solo for Tuba and Piano from the collection Scenes from the Cape. This collection is dedicated to my brother, Jerry Nelson, who was a musician and puppeteer with the Muppets.
This MRNS Music Digital Download will include the Tuba and Piano parts, a brief description of the solo, a SmartMusic accompaniment file, and an MP3 accompaniment file.
An audio recording of the trumpet version of this solo is available on the MRNS Music Channel on YouTube.
Description: I wanted to create a solo to teach double tonguing and thought that a rock style piece would be a fun way to do that. Most of the possible double tongue variations are present in a range that makes them easy to play. This solo start off in F minor then moves to Bb minor near the end.
