Welcome to TubaHead. My name is John Manning. I play in the Atlantic Brass Quintet and teach tuba and euphonium at the University of Iowa. TubaHead is designed to be about tuba-related stuff; tubas in the news, my tuba studio, my travels and performances, my photography, and occasional off-topic discussions. I like to include at least one image per post, I don't go into a lot of detail, and I try to keep my opinions brief and positive. I hope you enjoy the content and all of the links below, and thanks for stopping by.
