Filling up a tuba with air? Let's get into a little physics here. Air vibrates the lips, the horn amplifies those vibrations. Vibrations are going through the horn witch changes the pitch by adding or subtracting tubing. The horn resonates. We blow to the lips, not the horn.
Alex - thanks for the plug on Arnold Jacobs Almost Live. I'll be doing it in Arizona next week. Seeing Mr Jacobs work with that student is amazing!
