Learn from one of the world’s leading brass soloists.

Øystein Baadsvik is voted one of the top ten brass players in history by the listeners on Classic FM. Øystein did the world’s first TEDx talk on the topic of tuba, and is one of YouTube’s most popular brass musicians with more than seven million views. His multi-faceted musical career as a soloist and recording artist has taken him all over the world. He regularly gives masterclasses and clinics at major universities worldwide.



In this course, I will show you every aspect of my approach to become successful on a tuba. Through more than 180 lessons, I will be walking you step by step through the following:


Mastering the instrumentIn-depth explanations and exercises where I will be teaching you, just as if you were coming to my personal studio for lessons. I walk you through step by step how to practice each exercise and the most efficient ways to become better and faster in your technical work. Posture, breathing, sound production, warmup, low register, high register, legato, articulation, clarity, intonation, flexibility, trills, vibrato, double tonguing, playing fast, and much more. For each topic there is a part called “10 minutes to success”. This shows you in detail how to practice that particular part of your playing to get lasting results after only 10 minutes a day for 3 months.


From dots on a paper to a life changing performanceHow do you bring the music to life and how do you “tell a musical story”? Here I draw from my 30 years of experience as a soloist to teach you my approach to crafting a great performance. From building and releasing energy to effective use of the complete musical toolbox. We also go in depth into the different musical styles and musical characters, and how to recognise and use them in the music. It is all about your passion for music – and how you turn that passion into concerts that can transform people’s lives.


From daily practicing to planning your careerHow do you get as good as possible in the shortest possible amount of time? How do you plan a concert? How do you get gigs? In addition to practicing strategies, you will get tips on how to deal with stress and nervousness, preparing a concert, memorising music, developing a stage presence, dealing with different acoustics and everything else that happens before the concert.


In depth solo repertoire tutorialsAfter having judged hundreds of international solo competitions I have noticed that players often make the exact same mistakes in the music. My goal is to help you avoid these, and to help you take the piece to the next level. I will go over the basic technical challenges as well as the more advanced musical concepts, such as shaping the music, style, characters, rubato and dynamics. This now contains hours of video covering the standard solo repertoire, including the Vaughan Williams tuba concerto. I will be constantly expanding with more music. As a Lifetime Member, you can also suggest new repertoire.

Can you really improve your playing by watching a video?

Just like with live lessons, results come from quality.Here’s what people say after watching only a few of the videos in this course:

“This video has helped me out tremendously. This instruction is priceless!”Evan Marley

“Absolutely stunning lesson!”Hugh Melton

“Such a clear demonstration and explanation! Thank you!”Mike Freed

$7.500+ VALUE

It would take me well over a year of weekly lessons to go through the material in this course with a student. At my normal rate of $150/h that adds up to $7.500.

Some students claim it contains more value than four years at college.

In this course, you get access to all of this information in carefully crafted videos that you can watch over and over again – for life – on any device. Have a question after watching the video a few times? Just write your question and get it answered right on the lesson page.

The course also includes personal mentoring as well as live webinars with Q&As.
