Low brass is an important category for any band or orchestra. The euphonium or baritone and the tuba often provide the deep bass voice that helps to keep a steady beat – vital for the pulse of any ensemble.
Although the euphonium is most commonly known as a baritone, it is typically used for harmony but also functions as a solo instrument. It has the same pitch as a trombone but is played like a trumpet with valves pushed to form notes.
The tuba or sousaphone is one of the largest instruments in the band or orchestra and has the lowest pitch of all the instruments. Horns provide deep and booming tones that are regularly utilized by composers to keep the beat for the rest of the band. Thus these are two of the most important instruments for a band.
