The Ohio University Tuba-Euphonium Studio comprises a variety of student backgrounds with practically every major discipline in music. Students take advantage of an organized and creative learning and performing environment. In addition to applied lessons and participation in the School of Music primary ensembles, students also participate in the euphonium-tuba ensemble, sound class, technique class, quartets (2 euphoniums and 2 tubas), and brass chamber music, primarily involving brass quintets. Studio performance activities include quarterly studio recitals, Octubafests, quarterly ensemble and chamber music concerts, and frequent run-out concerts.

Students also supplement their studies by attending summer festivals and conferences such as the Rafael Mendez Brass Institute, the International Euphonium Institute, and the International Tuba-Euphonium Conference as well as competing in major solo competitions and national professional auditions.
