Your guide to mastering the tuba. Premium course. Personal mentoring, technique, musicality, preparation, repertoire tutorials.


In this course, I will show you every aspect of my approach to become successful on a tuba. Through more than 180 lessons, I will be walking you step by step through the following:  


Mastering the tuba

In-depth explanations and exercises where I will be teaching you, just as if you were coming to my personal studio for lessons. I walk you through step by step how to practice each exercise and the most efficient ways to become better and faster in your technical work. Posture, breathing, sound production, warmup, low register, high register, legato, articulation, clarity, intonation, flexibility, trills, vibrato, double tonguing, playing fast, and much more. For each topic there is a part called “10 minutes to success”. This tells you in detail how to practice that particular part of your playing to get lasting results after only 10 minutes a day for 3 months.


From dots on a paper to a life changing performance

How do you bring the music to life and how do you “tell a musical story”? Here I am drawing from my 30 years of experience as a soloist to teach you my approach to crafting a great performance. From building and releasing energy to effective use of the complete musical toolbox. We also go in depth into the different musical styles and musical characters, and how to recognise and use them in the music. It is all about your passion for music – and how to turn that passion into concerts that can transform people’s lives.


From daily practicing to planning your career

How do you get as good as possible in the shortest possible amount of time? How do you plan a concert? How do you get gigs? In addition to practicing strategies, you will get tips on how to deal with stress and nervousness, preparing a concert, memorizing music, developing a stage presence, dealing with different acoustics and everything else that happens before the concert.


In depth solo repertoire tutorials

After having judged hundreds of international solo competitions I have noticed that players often make the exact same mistakes in the music. My goal is to help you avoid these, and to help you take the piece to the next level. I will go over the basic technical challenges as well as the more advanced musical concepts, such as shaping the music, style, characters, rubato and dynamics. This now contains hours of video covering the standard solo repertoire, including the Vaughan Williams tuba concerto. I will be constantly expanding with more music. As a Lifetime Member, you can also suggest new repertoire.


"Great value!
I have had lessons with a number of professional tuba players, professors at universities, etc. I have learned a lot using Oystein's Complete Tuba Method. He has many very easy to understand analogies relating to playing and understanding technique. The addition of solos is just an added bonus, the technical materials, study plans and techniques are outlined wonderfully. I truly feel Oystein has not only transformed how I think about playing, but how I approach the tuba in general. The Lifetime Access has been worth every penny, and I've only used a small number of the videos so far."

"A highly recommended option for anyone who wants to know the secrets of the Tuba.
Øystein Baadsvik is an eclectic musician, with his own personality and an exceptional command of his instrument, qualities that are reflected in each of the lessons of the course. His teachings are clear and direct. He provides us solutions to problems and efficiency in the study of the Tuba with a progressive and very well organized program. His personal point of view for each of the exposed topics brings us freshness and inspiration in daily practice. The Baadsvik Method is undoubtedly a highly recommended option for anyone who wants to know the secrets of our instrument."

"A tuba transformation. 
I’ve been playing the tuba for a very long time- just over 32 years. I’ve also been stagnant for at least 20 of those years. Oystein’s thorough teaching has helped me to identify and correct the mistakes that were holding me back from making progress. Being able to repeat lessons as required to gradually improve aspects of my playing is a great help. Being able to join in on online forums with Oystein and fellow academy students is a superb way of enriching the learning experience."

"This is a great gift to have given myself - a sound method to move my playing forward. Oystein presents an organized and well thought out programme that can speak to all levels of expertise. His experience and virtuosity combine with a sincere, kind and engaging personality that is brought to life in a technically high quality presentation. Additional real time correspondence and webinars add a very personal touch to the programme. I now have the tools, so it's up to me to do the work.

"Getting what I want and easy
Your simple explanations in the first few videos have opened a whole new pallet for me. Today my orchestra finished a nice tuba program with Sibelius Symphony number 1 and Finlandia and I was putting these practices into performance with great success. Getting what I want and easy.

"Best Tool for Becoming a Better Tuba Musician. 
I have been playing the tuba for over 45 years and would consider myself an advanced player. I practice 10 to 14 hrs per week but not always effectively. I also struggle to play more musically. Improving your playing takes a lot of time and patience. Practicing the same way or wrong way doesn’t help. Øystein’s Tuba Academy is a structured approach for tuba players at all levels but is especially beneficial for advanced and professional musicians that wish to take their abilities to the next level. In addition to the basics there are a lot of tips that helped me in areas like range, multi tonguing and musicianship. Anytime I have an issue or need Øystein’s advice, he is always available for a quick coaching via email or the Academy’s forum. If you are serious about becoming a better player, there isn’t a better tool available for the tuba.
