Stepping Stones

Called the ‘ultimate euphonium educational tool’ this disc provides excellent performances of standard repertoire for any younger euphonium player. The material on this disc encompasses all primary levels of solos, and is an excellent resource for performer and teacher alike.

“Stepping Stones For Euphonium, Vol. 1 is a superb new disc from one of the most talented euphonium stars on the scene today. Pat Stuckemeyer has successfully produced a beautifully crafted recording of some of the most important pieces in the repertoire, i.e. music that lines the pathway of the euphonium player from student, through intermediate level to the advanced. In every way this is a clever, well thought out disc that gives model performances in quality of sound, mood, control and technique. – Dr. Paul Droste

“Stepping Stones should be perhaps one of the most sought after discs in this genre as it gives the learning player guidance in what appears to be easier repertoire, especially the last eight tracks. The more difficult works are also given authoritative readings that even the most advanced will take pleasure from. Wherever you can get hold of the disc, either on iTunes or by the buying the disc itself (which is very well presented indeed), go get it! Its resource for the teacher is immense, and lets face it there are many trombone and tuba teachers who have student euphonium players and who will find such a recording to be invaluable. I know for a fact a few of the pieces here I am hearing recorded for the first time and will prove a most useful teaching resource. I recommend this disc wholeheartedly and without reservation. Terrific job Pat – well done!”

– Steven Mead, international euphonium soloist
