Enjoying happy days

I've been in hard days now, but I'm so lucky because I'm with music and I can enjoy that hard time every moment! :D

But I know we all need rest, so I will balance between work and rest well.


It's always fun and good learning to teach to others. :) 





I'm also working hard for myself.

I'm trying to make video recording for my future works(dreams). ;)




Having nice dinner with family is always great!! :D




It will be some free days next week!

So I take care of myself and I'll enjoy my free days next week!! ;)

Orchestra tour is well done!

I was on my orchestra tour to Ehime and Shimane for 5 days.

That was very hard tour(long distance bus traveling), but I enjoyed it very much! :)


I like to see the sea. ;)

From the big bridge between Kagawa and Okayama.




My friend gave me chocolate bar after concert, so I had happy time in the bus. :D




It was very warm when we were in Matsuyama, but next day in Shimane was very cold!! :D




I found swan in the river in Yonago city!!! :D




I went to self service laundry in Yonago.

I had coffee and something nice for my waiting time. ;)



After that, I had good practice in the hotel room. :)




Concert in Shimane went well like concert in Matsuyama. :)




The last performance in this tour was in Sakai city, Osaka.

It was nice day!(but it was cold...)



We performed in new hall.

It was not finished yet, it will be opened this Autumn.

It was kind of test for its acoustic with audience. :)




There was enough time between rehearsal and concert, so I had big lunch with violin friend. :)




It seems nice hall, the new hall in Sakai. :D

Relaxed day

I spent really relaxed time with family yesterday.

In general(and typical) in Japan, Japanese people stay with family and talk, eat and drink at home for about 3 days.


My family don't do like that usually, but it was nearly like that yesterday. :)

Having happy lunch with my lovely family was great!! :D



After that in the evening, I had my Trombone practice for preparing my rehearsals for this weekend and next week. 

I enjoyed that!! :D



There are rehearsals and concerts from tomorrow.

I make good concentration and make nice music!! :D



I want to keep seeing this kind of nice views the year 2019. ;)

Happy New Year!

I enjoyed my orchestra's Silvester Concert last night. :)

It was in Biwako hall in Shiga.


It was not fantastic weather, but it was OK because it was no snow!! :D



I could see blue sky little bit. ;)




In the general rehearsal, we needed to wear something black or dark for light balancing.

So, I wore tailcoat jacket on jeans for rehearsal. :) ;)



Concert went well, and I finished all concert in 2018, and I started the first concert in 2019 at once. ;)



Happy New Year everyone! :D

Enjoy your everyday and nice music, and stay smiling~!! ;)
