Welcome to Japan!

One of my Euphonium friend Anthony(Caillet) from France visited Japan and came to Osaka for giving concert and masterclass.

It's always my big pleasure to get together with my good friends!!! :D


It was his first visit to Japan.

I'm so happy that he enjoyed his first Japan visit a lot! ;)


His concert & masterclass was "SOLD OUT"!

Congratulations!! :D



He enjoyed many nice Japanese food as well. :)

Of course some specialities from Osaka too!! :D



I had very relaxed and fun time with him(and my student Hiroya) before his concert.

These kind of experience always give me a lot of possitive energy. :D



Thank you Anthony for fun time!! and Thank you YAMAHA for inviting him to Japan!!

I'm so happy that many Japanese Euphonium players know Anthony by this opportunity. ;)

Enjoying Opera works

It was very nice day yesterday!! :D

I love this kind of sky view. ;)




I've been occupied with Opera rehearsals thesedays.

It needs different kind of concentration from usual orchestra works, but there are a lot of fun stuffs as well in Opera. :)



Mascagni's music is very beautiful. :D




I'm also enjoying my practice. :D

It's very important for me to practice with good feeling!



I really feel I'm so lucky to be in music life. :)

Enjoying Euphonium life too!

I'm occupied as the Trombone player in the orchestra, but I'm working as the Euphonium player(as clinician and soloist) as well.

I'm enjoying my Trombone performing in the orchestra, but also I'm enjoying my Euphonium performing as soloist and clinician. :)


Practicing on Euphonium refreshs my mind and my body for performing on Trombone in many ways(I can say the opposite).


I'm enjoying to practice on some old pieces(which I didn't play for many years) for both Trombone and Euphonium these days.

It was nice to work on these pieces.

I found many things what I got better from then. :)




I just received new Euphonium Concerto which I bought a week ago.

It's always very exciting to work on new thigns!! :D




I'm Euphonium tutor at the ESA Music Academy in Osaka.

This is my Euphonium class this year.

We make nice class!! :D



I'll continue to work hard on both Trombone and Euphonium!! :D

Having good practice!

During my free days from my orchestra, I really enjoy my life with family, food and music!! :D


There were some works what I needed to do during this period, and I finished most of them now and I'm ready to enjoy my time. ;)


I'm enjoying my practice both on Trombone and Euphonium(and sometimes on Bass Trumpet!).

I'm working for old and new pieces these days. :)




I think I'm ready to give concerts(recitals) now!

It's very exciting to imagine my future concerts! ;)

Something new!

I began to practice on Bass Trumpet yesterday. :)


There is no concert plans for Bass Trumpet performances for now, but I know that I need to prepare for being ready for it for future.

I can make practice time for that now and luckily I could borrow Bass Trumpet from one of my friend Norihito! :)



I'll work on it basically with orchestral excerpts.

Very excited!!! :D

Having happy music life
I had very good practice time both on Euphonium and Trombone. :)

It's nice to work on Euphonium often for making my Trombone condition well.
This is what I realised lately. ;)

I think I'm really lucky guy for having wonderful music life with wonderful instruments and mouthpieces. :D

It was very nice feeling to see blue sky in the morning after raining day! :D

What a nice start of the day with this kind of nature view. :)

I made some more new videos for YouTube which I'm working on for an Euphonium etudes.
