Enjoyed teaching

I have concert which I perform as one of guest soloist in Fukuoka this Sunday, so I'm preparing for that now.

It's getting little bit busy, but I'm enjoying my days. :D



I had very good teaching time with my Euphonium student yesterday.

There are so many things that we need to work on, but I found several good ways to work on it and finding happiness on working hard on it. :)



Keep working, and smiling!! :D

Working hard on music!

I enjoyed to be in the city(Osaka) on Saturday. :)

It was very nice day!! :D



That was for listening this concert!



My friends performed Trombone duo.

It was interesting! ;)




I was occupied these few weeks for making video clips for advising how to practice on the required pieces for Japan Wind Band Competition this year.

There are 5 required pieces(all of them was composed for this competition) and I made videos for 1st Trombone, 2nd Trombone and Euphonium part.


I made video clips by myself like this. :)



It was not easy at all, but I did all of them yesterday!! :D


And now, it's time to edit those video clips...

That's hard work too.


I had waiting time in the car parking yesterday afternoon, so I was working on it then. :)




I keep practicing well! :D

I take care of practicing too much. ;)

New item, new place

I found small suitcase which is good for using for my concert day few days ago with good price. :)

So I began my new concert day life with new suitcase.

It works good!! ;)




I visited the East part of Aichi and gave Trombone lesson to high school wind band members yesterday. :)

It was my first time visiting there, but I had really enjoyable time with their band director and students. ;)



It's 3 hours drive one way to there, but nice sky view makes us happy. :)

Orchestra Day

There were 2 concerts in the morning and in the afternoon yesterday.

It was one of the event "Orchestra Day" in Japan.

I think there are many orchestra concerts in Japan yesterday. :)


It's always not easy to give 2 concerts a day.

I need to find better way for saving my energy and concentration. :)




I had relaxed evening with family yesterday. :)

I was very exhausted by performing concerts and taking train in the station which had many people(because it's Spring vacation in Japan now)...

I'm refreshed today! :D

Preparing for solos

I had kind of busy day yesterday, but had good practice time in the evening both on Trombone and Euphonium.



I have solo performances on Sunday in Fukui.

I'll perform "Blue Bells of Scotland" on Trombone and "Pantomime" on Euphonium with wind band(in one concert!).

I'm so excited in performing them!! :D



I wrote one small article on theme of "Do you know your basis practice is for what?" as Trombone/Euphonium player for Japanese famous wind band magazine "Band Journal".

There are Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, French Horn, Trumpet, Tuba and Percussion players wrote about same theme.



It's interesting that only Ryoichi(Tamaki, Tuba of Sapporo Symphony) and I mentioned about breathing as an important point on basis practice. :)


Viva, Low brass!! :D

Two Requiems

I was in very hard orchestra days and I've finally done last concert of that period yesterday! :)



The last concert was programmed with 2 Requiems.

Requiems by G.Faure and W.A.Mozart in one concert was also big program I think.



It was my first time to perform Requiem by W.A.Mozart in concert.

It's hard one I realized!! ;)



I was so exhausted after yesterday's concert(it means after 17 orchestra working days with out any free day).

So I charged energy for getting home with this sweet. ;) :D
