In undergraduate music curricula, the subjects of music theory and applied music are typically taught separately, with little connection made between them. As a result, students may compartmentalize their knowledge instead of applying it to the music they work on in the studio. This lack of connection can especially affect students studying the tuba, an instrument seldom represented in music theory textbooks and classrooms. This project proposes a way to use the applied tuba studio as a vehicle for a more integrated approach to music theory.
