ABOUT THE MUSICIAN:
Christopher Hall is the Principal Tuba of the Adrian Symphony Orchestra. He graduated from the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance with honors as a part of the class of 2021 with a Bachelors in Music: Tuba Performance. He has played with the University of Michigan Symphony Band, University Symphony Orchestra, Texas Music Festival Orchestra, and the Boston University at Tanglewood Institute Orchestra. His teachers include Tom Riccobono at the Interlochen Arts Academy, Fritz Kaenzig (ret.) and David Zerkel at the University of Michigan, Mike Roylance, Yasu Sugiyama, and Dave Kirk. In this video, he played an etude for the solo. The etude is number 4 in the book Marco Bordogni 43 Bel Canto Studies for Tuba. This book is used for intermediate to advanced players to study phrasing and musicality as they were originally what singers would use to warm up their voices to sing for opera. Having students imitate others instruments and voices teaches them how they can be expressive on any instrument, and in this case, the tuba! “I sincerely hope your student or child continues to learn about music as it has enriched my life, and I hope to pass on the same to others.”

The Story of "Ready to Read Michigan"
The Library of Michigan’s Ready to Read Michigan program encourages reading aloud regularly to children during the early stages of life (birth up to age 5), as it ensures the development of early literacy skills and instills a love of reading. The program is designed for public librarians to model early literacy skill development directly to families and engage in outreach to early childhood centers, classrooms and daycares throughout their community.
This program is made possible by grant funds
from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.
Additional support provided by Bloomsbury Publishing, Consumers Energy
and the Library of Michigan Foundation.

Ready to Read Michigan
The Library of Michigan is pleased to announce the 2020
"Ready to Read Michigan" book selection A Parade of Elephants
written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes
Follow five joyful elephants as they march about their day,
counting and exploring opposites from dawn to dusk.
Kevin Henkes’ simple, repetitive text and
carefully constructed illustrations using beautifully muted colors
encourage young children to develop a sense of spatial awareness.
MEET THE AUTHOR & ILLUSTRATOR: Kevin Henkes
“I’ve been writing and illustrating children’s books for thirty years.
It’s the only real job I’ve ever had.
When my work is going well, it’s transformative.
I feel as if I’ve been removed from ordinary time
and am living in some parallel universe, a world of grace and wonder.
Books are often the first exposure to art that children have.
Keeping that in mind urges me to make the very best books possible.
I know how important the books from my childhood were (and are)
to me. Without them, I might not be a writer and artist today.
Sometimes I’ll hear from a parent about how a book of mine has insinuated itself
into the heart of his or her child, or how a phrase from one of my books has
become part of the family’s daily jargon.
I love that.
But most of all, I love sitting alone in a quiet room drawing
and painting and writing. I love my job.”
– Kevin Henkes
