Euphoniums are one of the less popular instruments most commonly found in concert bands and full orchestra but also in marching band and jazz bands lacking trombones. Euphoniums are categorized as low brass instruments and share very similar structure to baritones but have straight bells and 4 valves where the baritone has a curved bell and 3 valves. I have played euphonium for 8 years now and have found there are many techniques that can be used during playing that make it unique like lip trills, growls, flutter tongue, trills, and half-valve murmurs. I have also found its sound compatible with the flute and piano to make for beautiful duets.
