3rd Annual Tuba & Euphonium Day at Paige’s Music

I am thrilled to announce Paige’s Music’s third annual Tuba & Euphonium Day on Saturday, April 27th.

This year, we’re partnering with the Eastman Music Company, along with Willson Band Instruments and S.E. Shires Co. to bring you a full day celebrating all things low brass, and welcome the world-class Scott Sutherland as our featured artist!


Throughout the day, we will have an array of instruments and mouthpieces available to test and purchase. You can also sign up to get one-on-one instrument feedback with our guests as well as our representative from the Eastman Music Company. Instrument testing will be followed by a performance, clinic, and masterclass from our guest artists.

Here is the day’s schedule for Tuba & Euphonium Day 2024:

  • 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM – Instrument/mouthpiece fittings & testing – Eastman tubas, Willson Euphoniums, S.E. Shires Co. Euphoniums, and Laskey mouthpieces | 30-minute appointments with Scott Sutherland and Sophie Rojas from Eastman Winds. If you are interested in trying out tubas or euphoniums that day, you may (MAKE AN  INSTRUMENT APPOINTMENT BY CLICKING HERE). Appointment slots are limited, so don’t wait!
  • 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM – Break. Our guests will be out of the store during this period, but you are still welcome to come browse.
  • 5:00 to 7:00 PM – Masterclass and Performance by Scott Sutherland.
    • Masterclass topics to include:
      • Be Your Own Chamber Group
      • Incorporating Technology Into The Practice Room
      • Creating Your Own Practice Materials

 Our guest artists’ unique expertise in these areas will make for a wonderful, informative clinic that can even apply to all wind instrumentalists beyond just the tuba and euphonium. And amid these presentations, we will be treated to a performance from a world class musician.

All in all, this year’s Tuba & Euphonium Day is shaping up to be our biggest low brass event ever, and I couldn’t be more excited!

Scott has been hailed as “the second craziest tuba player I know” by famed American composer, Joan Tower. He is a member of the Redlands Symphony, Riverside Philharmonic and has been spotted in the back rows of the Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony and many more. Likely due to clerical errors, Scott has performed at the front of the stage as a soloist with the San Diego and Idyllwild Arts Symphony Orchestras, as well as Riverside and Burbank Philharmonic. He has also recorded for film, television and video game soundtracks, including the major motion pictures Pearl Harbor, Batman vs. Superman, and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (which are the only accomplishments notable to his younger private students).

For 11 years, Scott was a founding member, tubist and pianist of the international touring ensemble, Presidio Brass. During his time with the quintet, he performed in over 40 states, Canada and China.

Scott can often be found behind his MacBook Pro, slaving away for hours on end adapting music. His arrangements have been performed by ensembles throughout the world, including the Principal Brass of the New York Philharmonic, famed tubist and conductor Roger Bobo, as well as chamber groups from the West Point Band and the “President’s Own” Marine Band. Scott’s “Fantasy on Porgy and Bess” for trumpet and orchestra was commissioned by soloist Barry Perkins and has been performed with the Pacific Symphony (California) and the Aguascalientes Symphony (Mexico).

He began the popular Scott Sutherland Music YouTube Channel in 2016 which includes multitrack videos of film, television and video game music, featuring Scott playing euphonium, tuba, cimbasso, piano and percussion. To date, the channel has been viewed nearly 3 million times and anyone reading this bio ought to stop and immediately subscribe to the channel.

Beyond his performance career, Scott is a passionate and dedicated teacher. Currently, he is on the faculty at the University of Redlands, Palomar College and the Idyllwild Arts Summer Program.

Despite all of this, Scott’s foremost identity, besides being an avid whiskey snob, comes as a husband and father to his beautiful family and he is always grateful to come home to Carlsbad, CA where it never fails to be 70 degrees and sunny all year round.

Scott Sutherland is proud to be an Artist and Clinician for Eastman Winds.
