Our intermediate course helps you to learn across a range of different skills. It recaps on what you learnt in the beginners’ course and then builds upon those lessons. If you can already play the Euphonium at a basic level, this may be the perfect course to take your musical journey forward.

Starting with Scales and Arpeggios, the lessons work through improving your skills in key areas. It looks at fingering and flexibility, sustaining a note, learning about loud and soft playing, and improving your range, amongst a range of other skills. It focuses all the time on learning new skills alongside strengthening the basics. Your musicality will be enhanced as you understand more about the instrument and its’ versatility. You will be undertaking more complicated exercises and pieces. This ten-video course also teaches you how to practice correctly and manage your playing to improve your all round musicianship. A perfect follow-up for our Beginner’s course.
