Well, I don't suppose it can mess up your chops any more than playing euph, and I think there's an awful lot of people out there doing that. The Yamaha student is a nice enough starter horn, but as a tuba player you'll find the small bore frustrating very quickly I imagine. As far as playing trombone, I think it's great for working on your ears. There's nothing like an a slide to really make you listen.
