Enjoyed different things

I took some official pictures at the studio last week.

It was hard work, but fun time too! :D




After photo session about 4 hours(selecting pics after taking pics took time much), I enjoyed my favorite thing for lunch! :D




Practicing on basis is very important and I feel good with these works. ;)




It was very fine day yesterday.

Busy, but fun weekend

I enjoyed busy, but fun weekend! :)


There was mini-recital by my Euphonium student at the ESA music academy on Friday morning.

She shared its recital with her Trombone friend.


Both of them did good job!! :D

Congratulations! and thank you for your great performance pianist Ayana. ;)




After that, I moved to my home city Matsuyama.

I had really fun time with my good friends from Matsuyama and Osaka together in Matsuyama. :)




It was very rainy day in Matsuyama.

I stay only one day and it rains all the day... :(



Had very nice Udon for lunch! ;)



Euphonium lesson in Matsuyama.

We had good time together! ;)




Just after teaching in Matsuyama, we left for next destination Tokuyama(Yamaguchi).

On our way, we spent relaxed time in Imabari. :)






And enjoyed very delicios dinner in Tokuyama(Yamaguchi). :D





It was very nice day on Sunday in Tokuyama. :D

Shared valuable time

It was very nice day like real Summer yesterday. :)

It was not so humid, so I like that kind of weather! ;)




I had little practice on Trombone before go to teach.

It was nice to work on basis with relaxed mind. :)




I had very enjoyable Euphonium lesson at the ESA music academy in the late afternoon. :D

Working with good pianist is very valuable.



I'm very happy to listen my student's progress. :)

She is in good shape now.

I really hope her to improve this way!! ;)

Backed to musician's life

It was unstable weather yesterday.

Weather forecast said it would be rain at noon, but there was no rain until 19:00...




I backed to musician's life. :D

I enjoyed my practice with good feeling! ;)




When I visited to Sweden few weeks ago, I put mute to my case instead of Alto Trombone.

It was my first time to do so, but it makes big difference!

I didn't think it makes big difference about weight, but I felt "Wow, it's light!" every time when I take my case. :)

It's good idea! ;)

It was nice to work on basis, etude and solo. ;)




I visited to Kyoto(not in the city) to see the waterfall.

It was about an hour by car.

I really enjoyed being in the nature. :D




I expected to feel cooler air at the mountain, but it was hot too there...







It was awesome to share nice time with my love Ai. ;)




After enjoyed being in the mountain, we visited to the waterfall point.









There in no water there... :(

It was just "Rock Wall".


"Waterfall" was "No Water Wall"...



That was big pity...

But it was nice to be in the calm nature. :)
