Twinkle Twinkle little star Played here on the big tub-a Sitting there upon the stage Where Tuba sound is all the rage Twinkle Twinkle little star Players off now to the bar.

Okay, as usual, I am not a brass player any comments regarding the playability of this piece is most welcome. I think you can breath in this…

Mr. Phelan's Review - A reply

> I do a lot…

Yes, of course this is true. It is a set of variations, designed to see what different ideas can be extracted from a single simple theme.

> Lots of sharp keys…

Interesting, I've now allowed the score to be transposed. although this will still have "sharp key" passages.

I spoke to the people I wrote it for and they said

"he has a point… because we are used to playing in E flat more than E. Of course E flat will sound better but that doesn't mean that we cannot play well in E."

What I will do is change some passages to their enharmonic equivalents where appropriate. i.e. the C# passage can easily be in D-flat.

> Didn't hold attention…

Oh well, no accounting for taste… it happens… :-)

> Playing Level

It wasn't written to be student material (why do people keep assuming this?). It was written for an exemplary quartet who have great visual appeal. Besides, some students are rather good.

Hope this clears up any confusion. :-)
