No list of notable tuba players is complete without mention of Tucker Jolly, who has taught for many years at the University of Akron, performed with the Cleveland Orchestra, and currently plays with the Akron Symphony Orchestra. Screw those Julliard fakes listed on here. Anyone who has heard him or sat under his teaching knows that he is without a doubt, one of the best ever. His arrangement of 'Flight of the Bumblebee' is incredible. He is also the founder of 'TubaChristmas'. Add the guy, he's the man. And yes, this is biased, but just google 'Tucker Jolly Akron Tuba' and you'll find all you need for reliable sources. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:04, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
Previous list over-ridden without discussion
With no talk page discussion whatsoever, another editor had pasted in an entirely new unreferenced list, overwriting the previous list which had references and a sortable format. I have reverted to the previous version (with some copy edits) pending further discussion here. Voceditenore (talk) 11:33, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
"Tuba player" or "Tubist"?
- I'm not a native English speaker, so my opinion may be wrong. But it seems to me that "tuba player" is much more common. --Tuba Mirum (talk) 00:12, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
This list violated multiple Wikipedia policies regarding notability, use of external links, biographies of living persons, no original research, and what Wikipedia is not . It was a link farm and spam magnet. I have removed all names which do not have an article on Wikipedia. Please do not add any names which do not have articles, they will be removed. If you wish to add a name, then write an article about them first, referenced to reliable sources which verify the information in the article and establish the subject's notabilty. If you wish to expand this list with existing articles, check Category:Tubists.
I have made the following edits to the descriptions column:
- removed all puffery, e.g. "world renowned" per WP:NPOV
- removed all references to "currently" per WP:MOS. It is a meaningless word. Don't use it. Use a specific date, e.g. as of 2010.
- removed all external links per WP:EL and WP:NOT. Any relevant external links should be in the listed article not here. Wikipedia is not an internet directory, or free advertising space.
The following red linked names and their alleged descriptions have been removed, pending articles:
- Sergio Finca - Tuba player with the Spanish Brass, winner of the Brno Tuba Competition 2005
- Steve Dumaine - Principal Tuba, National Symphony Orchestra.
- Melvin Culbertson - Professor of tuba at Conservatoire National Supérieur Lyon; formerly principal tuba with l'Orchestre de Bordeaux
- James Akins - Principal Tubist with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, and Professor of Tuba/Euphonium at Ohio State University
Names with no link at all or whose articles had been deleted have also been removed. The complete list before I edited it is available in this version.
Use this space to request articles on notable tubists missing from this list. Once the article has been created and the name added to List of tuba players, please strike through or remove. Voceditenore (talk) 09:54, 9 December 2010 (UTC)

Add Yasuhito Sugiyama and Ronald Bishop

He is currently the tubist of the Cleveland Orchestra (taking over after Ronald Bishop's retirement from the orchestra). He currently teaches at the Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Jdonofrio92 (talk • contribs) 00:02, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
List of tuba players on the French WP site
The Tuba page on the French WP site includes a list of tuba players (link to the French WP page). They are not handled the same... but editors of this English page might like to check some of the entries that they have included on the French page. (Not all of them have their own biographic pages... and some of those that do, only have pages on the French site. However, it might give some ideas for adding to the material on the English site). Just my thoughts. TheAMmollusc (talk) 08:36, 15 May 2012 (UTC) and revised TheAMmollusc (talk) 08:43, 15 May 2012 (UTC)
I would like to make a page for Paul Haugan, but am having trouble finding much about him online besides his recent obituaries. Also I've never created a page and am not sure about how to do it, or how well it will turn out. Any fans of Paul's willing to help? Air (talk) 16:05, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
