Love to practice

I've been loving to practice for myself since I was 13 years old(when I started to play the Euphonium).

I always have my goal in my mind and I love to walk(run?) to there at anytime!

My goal is always very far, but it's never too far! ;)



I enjoyed my practice yesterday too. ;)



Worked on Bassoon etudes for Euphonium.

It works very well. :)




I gave Euphonium private lesson in the afternoon at the ESA music academy in Osaka.

It's always my big pleasure working with them. :)




It was not fine day yesterday.

We got very hard rain sometimes during the day.

It's very unstable weather thesedays.




Dinner was my favorite "Home made Gyoza"!! :D

It was yummy!!!

Enjoying my music life without orchestra

I'm free from my orchestra works for a week now after very very hard days more than 2 weeks.

And now, it's time to work for teaching! ;)


I had really good time in high school wind band in Kyoto with Trombone and Euphonium section. :D





I'm also having good practice time for myself. :)

I feel very happy when I'm practicing. ;)




It has been very hot days everyday.

But sky view is nice! ;)





My younger son had his birthday and he became 14 years old!

What a happy feeling being with fantastic family!! :D

I had good practice time on Euphonium in the evening.

It's really fun time for me to work for myself. ;)

Very hard tour is done!

Very hard school concert tour is finally over! :D

It was very tough, but I survived!!


I can say, it's not good idea at all to perform in the school gymnasium with more than 35 degrees!!!





I could make my practice time in the hotel room during tour. ;)




It's in rainy time in Japan now, but we didn't have rain day during tour!! :)

We were so lucky! :D

Enjoying music life

After crazy hard works of game music concerts, I'm backed to classical concert now. :)

My lips were almost broken by playing so hard for game music concerts... ;)


I feel peace by performing classical repertoires. :)




There is the orchestra school concert tour this week, so I had good practice time on Euphonium before leave home because I can't work on it for few days during tour. :)

Surviving hard days

I've been surviving since the end of June.

There are orchestra activities everyday, and it continues one more week...


It's good that we have opportunity to make music for many people, many places, but I feel I need to take a rest sometimes. ;)


Rehearsal was from 13:30 yesterday, so I had little Euphonium time before go to rehearsal. :D

It's hard to make time for Euphonium when I'm very occupied with orchestra works, but it's very important to continue to work on both Trombone and Euphonium for me. :)




There were (usual)rehearsal and general rehearsal same day yesterday...

So it was very long day.



We perform today twice.

Concert starts at 12:00 and 18:00.

It's going to be also long day today.


I'll survive!!! :D

Backed to home

I backed to home from one week tour yesterday.

It was long way travel from Iwate to Osaka.


Shinkansen works very well traveling in Japan. ;)



There were three train changes between Iwate and Osaka.

Japan is not big, but not small. :P


Changing train with these cases is hard work! ;)



It was very nice to travel with seeing nice views. :D





I realized again that Japan is beautiful country. ;)
