Enjoying music life

I had busy but happy days this week.


Practice for myself was fine. :)




And I'm really enjoying teaching at the ESA music academy. :)

I'm very happy to have nice students. ;)






I also enjoyed my private lesson. :)

I feel very happy to share my ideas and experience with students.




Of course, my orchestra works go well. :)

Judged solo competition

It's getting cooler day by day and rain by rain.

Winter is reaching little by little.


Nature looks that they are preparing for Winter.

I want to stay in Autumn more! :)




I judged solo competition yesterday.

I lietened several brass players(2 Trumpets, 2 Horns, 2 Trombones and 2 Tubas).

They are from hish school student to graduated amateur.

They performed well. :)


Some of them seems they are studying for being professional musician.

Considering that, I feel that they need to change their mind little bit.


Some of them performed really well.

But there is some who is OK(I mean it was not "really well").

They need to consider and change their preparation process for the competition(or audition).


I hope they realise that soon and get better way to work for future.



In the evening, I had good practice with some concertos. :)



I keep working hard!! ;)

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

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. :)



I got very good energy by my friends yesterday! :D

I work hard from today with that energy! ;)

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. :)
