The most influential people in my youth were my grandparents. The boy needs a hero, someone to look up to. I suggest that you yourself take up the euphonium, which is the octave to the tuba. Most tuba players grew into the instrument from learning another first. You & your grandson can share alot just by his observing his grandpa learning an instrument. It's just like fishing really, when they are prepared to pick up the rod & reel they just do it on their own. untill then they just like being in the boat.
