Judge and rehearse

I enjoyed my practice before and after orchestra works.


I had good time with Euphonium on Milde's etude yesterday. ;)

Milde's etude(it's originally for bassoon) works very well for Euphonium.

This is one of my favorite etude book. :)




I judged an examination at the ESA Music Academy at noon.

It was my first time to judge its examination, but it was nice to know about academy's system and way to educate students. :)



I headed to Kobe for the orchestra rehearsal just after judging examination.

This is sky view in Kobe. :)




Orchestra rehearsal, Day-2.

It was for G.Verdi's Requiem.

Yesterday was with singers. With singers is more fun!! :D

I visited Kobe city with my wife Ai yesterday for holiday. :)

It was my first time to visit Kobe city for not rehearsals or concerts.

I had very enjoyable practice in the evening. :)

With my favorite French etude.




I knew that British composer D.Bourgeois passed away few days ago.

He wrote important pieces for Trombone and Euphonium.


These are my favorite pieces by him. :)



R.I.P. Mr. Bourgeois.

Euphonium Day

It was the Euphonium Day yesterday for me. :)


I really enjoyed my Euphonium class at the ESA Music Academy in the afternoon.

I'm very proud of my students for their effort. :)

We keep working hard!! ;)




After giving lesson, I immediately headed to listen the wind band concert which my student Hiroya performs.

On my way to the concert hall, I enjoyed very good Soba! ;)

It was simple, but delicious!!! :D




I met many friends at the concert!

It's always very happy and exciting to meet good friends!! :)


With Kenichi who is conductor and Euphonium player!



With composer Satoshi(Yagisawa) after the concert.

He conducted his composition at the concert. :)

Opera week is over

My "Opera week" is over.

There were many audience for both performances. Thank you for coming!! :)


My place in the orchestra pit at the concert hall last week was very close to stage wall.

There is little opening between floor and wall like this.



I needed to pay attention to my chair position too. ;)



It was bit scare.

Don't drop your music, pencil, cell phone, mouthpiece, slide!!! :D



I couldn't have my own practice time enough last week, so I had well concentrated practice time before opera performance yesterday.

So I felt very good when we perform. :)
