Archives: Abstracts

The ITEAonline.org Research Abstracts Database was created with the goal of providing a central location for listing tuba/euphonium related abstracts for our community. Please consider listing your project as part of the database. Once the database is considerably populated, we will be adding a search function to aid in locating projects by author, topic, subject matter, etc. If you have any questions, contact James Green who has graciously agreed to oversee the database project.
