ITEA REPRESENTATION: The Press, The Media, and Public Relations
By Harvey G. Phillips
Founding member, former TUBA President, and icon in the tuba/ euphonium world, Harvey Phillips shares his lifetime of expertise in dealing with press and media people. In this article, he gives practical advice on ways to positively represent our instruments to a media profession that isn’t always friendly to us. Every euphonium and tuba player should read this article and think carefully about the actions that they take regarding the euphonium and tuba, both with the media and in any situation wherein they are representing our instruments to the public, whether as player or speaker.
