The drobnakbrass website was created in 2014 to support a presentation at the International Tuba Euphonium Conference at Indiana University. Various parts of the website have grown with research and performance interests. This has necessitated a change in the structure of the website to better reflect current needs. Pages are in the processed of being shifted, updated, and in some cases deleted. This is an ongoing process. Thanks for your understanding!
