Dominique Slegers

(my biggest supporter)

Dominique has a formidable list of skills in her repertoire. She is an organized thinker; systematic in her process and very thorough in all details associated with each level of preparation. She has an ability to have a broad overview of each project while maintaining the precision on the micro and macro levels. Dominique is passionate and sensitive to each project, rarely able to “just work” without meaning.

Yamaha

(instrument builder)

Why do I play Yamaha tubas? Simple… Quality! I perform on the Yamaha York CC tuba (YCB826), YFB822, and the YFB 821. Yamaha Tubas set the standard for quality, sound, and innovation. In choosing the instruments for my work I was immediately drawn to the workmanship of this wonderful company. The sound of my YCB 826S YamaYork in the larger symphonic repertoire is unsurpassed while I use my YFB 822 and YFB821S Custom tubas for all my ensemble and solo needs. What a luxury to be able to choose! Yamaha, the instrument for artists.
