Bill Muter (born June 8, 1984) is an American tuba and bass player from South Florida. Muter has been affectionately labeled the “Victor Wooten of Tuba” and is arguably best known for his eclectic tuba playing with avant-garde singer/songwriter Mike Mineo. Their works together have been featured on CBS Daybreak, E! TV’s hit show “Khole and Lamar” and numerous television commercials. Their latest Album, "Beach Season," was well received on the college radio scene and the group was listed on Austin’s radio station, 93.3 KGSR, as an up and coming artist for 2011. Mineo and Muter also created the "Odd Ball Freak Tour," a theatrical accordion and tuba duo that toured throughout the southeastern United States.
Muter’s performance background is as diverse as his audience. Since the start of Muter’s professional career he has maintained a schedule of over two hundred public performances a year in venues across North America, Korea, Japan, Haiti, the Spanish Islands and the Netherlands Antilles. Muter regularly performs in the HMI music scene with pop sensation “Gabel.” Muter is also a tubist and percussionist in the Tony and Emmy Award Winning Broadway Show Blast and has toured with the company since 2007.
Along with Muter's performance endeavors, he is also involved in the music education scene. Muter is a contributing author of master class materials to the International Tuba and Euphonium Association. He is also the author of a brass pedagogy book titled “A Practical Approach.” The book was released in May of 2012 and has received international acclaim, being featured in Brass Musician Magazine, The International Tuba Euphonium Association and the New Times. In the same month, Muter released “A Practical Approach” for iBooks that includes numerous videos and play along tracks as well. A translated Japanese edition of the book was released shortly after and is being sold at all of the shows on Blast’s most recent Japan Tour. Muter is an active music clinician and also serves as an Artist in Residence for the Milagro Center in South Florida.
