If you really want to do it right and have the money, find a compensating Euphonium. Wilson, Besson, Yamaha, and Hirshbrunner are a few big names to try those out on. Yamaha also makes a great four valve, non-compensating horn as does Wilson, that is if you are wanting to save some money(Compensating horns are considerably more expensive, but worth it) Go used because it's cheaper and if you spend some time looking around for a good one, then you will find something great for a low price. Just make sure that you at least have 4 valves going into a master's degree in performance. Also, try looking into VCU with Ross Walters. Good teacher and good euphonium player as well. Roger Behrend at George Mason is also doing a great job and what a fantastic player! Those are a few schools/teachers that come to mind in that area.
