These Six Little Tuba Pieces were written in late 1977 and early 1978 at the request of a talented student, Emma Parkinson, then aged 15. She had rightly complained that, having made the effort and achieved her Grade 5 (with distinction, in less than a year from taking up the instrument), there was little else available that was worth playing either in terms of development or enjoyment.
Here we see an exquisite response to that complaint with these are six contrasting pieces written for Tuba and Piano, by Gordon Jacob. Two tuba solo parts are included, one notated in the treble clef and the other notated in the bass clef.
Set as part of the ABRSM Grade 6 Tuba Syllabus.
