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

Teaching and Rehearsal

It was very nice day yesterday!

I felt very happy to see nice blue sky in the morning. ;)




I gave Euphonium private lesson at noon before go to the orchestra rehearsal.

We had good time. :)



I borrowed an Euphonium from the shop during my teaching yesterday.

It was YAMAHA Custom with trigger.



This is nice horn, but not the best for me.

I love my ADAMS Euphonium in many points. :D ;)



I went to the orchestra rehearsal right after that.

It was for Requiems by G.Faure and W.A.Mozart.



My very hard days will end soon!! :)

Writing about music is not easy

Finally, I'm off from orchestra works for 2 days now!

But there are many things what I need to do.


It's fine because I work on matters what I love to do, but it's not so easy to make my time schedule for those. ;)


I'm working on writing manuscript of an article about basis practice on Trombone or/and Euphonium for monthly Japanese wind instruments magazine right now.

It's not easy at all to explain about music practice by words. So I use my brain as much as possible for these few weeks. :D

It's almost done now!

I'll work on it hard this morning and finish it!!! :D



I had enjoyable time with my Euphonium students at the ESA Music Academy yesterday. :)

It's always big fun to work hard with them.



I'm so happy to have these nice students. :D
