Sound Production: You produce a sound on the Euphonium by buzzing your lips together when you blow against the mouthpiece.

Interesting Facts:

  • The euphonium is very similar to the baritone horn, but it is different because the tubes are wider and it is bigger.
  • The euphonium makes low sounds, similar to the trombone.
  • The euphonium has 3 or 4 valves and 1-3 spit valves. “Spit” valves do not really mean there is spit in the instrument; it means that there is condensation in the instrument.
  • The word euphonium means: “producing nice sounds”
