  • Observe great posture while remaining perfectly relaxed at all times. Imagine yourself to be strong yet weightless. Move forward to near the edge of your chair, both feet flat on the ground. Hug the euphonium closely to your body with your left hand and do not let it rest on your lap.
  • Inhale gracefully and fully. Each time you inhale to get air power, open your mouth wide and move your tongue down and out of the way of the incoming air. Sit up straight. Open up your chest cavity by pulling your shoulders back and let the air fill your entire torso.
  • Exhale powerfully. Whether you are playing loud or softly, triumphantly or sweetly, you need to imagine great power in your air supply. When exhaling breath into the instrument, make sure you have a vast storehouse of live oxygen in your lungs to back up the column of air you are giving to the euphonium. As a rule of thumb, always attack the first note with your lungs at two-thirds to 95% of capacity. Upon release, exhale most of the excess air before inhaling again, so that the oxygen is always clean.
  • Your notes should generally be shaped like bricks, not cones or footballs. This means your note should be of the same quality from beginning to end, in most cases. Do not start quietly and get louder, and do not taper off at the end of the note. (Obviously, if the music calls for something else, do what the music requires.)
  • Relax your embouchure. Your lips should only be tense enough to produce a pure buzz. Any tighter, and you've got yourself a constipated-sounding euphonium. Any looser, and you sound like that clinically depressed donkey from Sesame Street. Your tone should sound bright and lyrical.
  • Play lyrically. In other words, think of music in terms of long continuous passages, not as individual notes. Play like a human, not a robot. Think analog, not digital. Try singing your notes, and mean it. Use loud and soft and all the other dynamics to their fullest, to create contrasting emotion within the musical piece. Enjoy the sound you make!
