In Oku-Noto(Ishikawa)

I had very enjoyable weekend in Oku-Noto(Ishikawa).

Next day of happy BBQ holiday, I left home at 6:00 in the morning to Oku-Noto.

It takes about 5 hours by car from Osaka...


It was fantastic day!! :D

That's important matter for long driving.



We enjoyed nice view where we took rest. :D




We gave one concert by Brass Quintet with Drums and 4 workshops.

At the concert, I performed 2nd Trumpet part(it works pretty well!!) and I used Bass Trumpet for some pieces. ;)



Introducing Bass Trumpet sound. :)



It was very happy time with nice member!! :D




We had fun dinner at our accomodation.

We enjoyed nice Sashimi and talk!! :D




Teaching to junior high school students are enjoyable.

They have limitless possibilities. :)


There is nice garden at one school.




We added 3 more members for workshops.

Dinner got bigger and more fun!! :D




At the school where we visited last day, it was very nice room which we could see the sea. :D ;)

What a nice place to practice!! ;)

Be positive!

I've been occupied with concerts and teaching these days.

It was kind of busy, but I enjoyed all of them! :D


Private lesson for Euphonium.



Individual lessons at the ESA music academy. ;)




Farm works are also fun for me! :)

Everything seems fine!!




It's rainy period now in Osaka.

It's not easy to feel happy when it's rain for me, but I try to be positive!! :D

Full enjoyable day

I had full enjoyable day yesterday. :D


I took train at 7:00 in the morning and it took more than 2 hours to there where I gave workshop.

It's not bad to travel in the early morning, but with 2 big instruments is not easy... ;)




I really enjoyed working with member of Aboshi junior high school wind band. :D

They worked very hard and well.

Everything went well. :)




Fantastic blue sky made my mind peace. ;)



Also sunset view was nice!! :D

Enjoyed full day!

I worked as farmer in the morning yesterday. :)

Everything goes fine. ;)




I quickly changed my clothes after farmer works, and picked my Euphonium and then, took train for teaching at noon.

It was my switching moment to the musician. ;)




Individual lessons at the ESA music academy in the afternoon.

We worked together very well on the points what they need to get over each.

I think they both found the way to go now. :)




I had one more Euphonium private lesson in the evening. :)

She is junior high school student and it was her first ever Euphonium private lesson. ;)



We worked together for many things and I think she found many different way to sound well! :D

I enjoyed all day yesterday very much!! ;)

Home sweet home

After my orchestra's tour for a week, I backed home finally.

Before back to home, I went to our farm and took care of them. ;)

They are all fine!! :D




I felt I need rest time for next thing, but there is not rest time...

Next rehearsal was today(next day).

There is not free day for having a rest, but this is life. ;)

I'll survive!! :)

Orchestra tour to Iwate

I was in Iwate for my orchestra's tour.

We performed 2 concerts there and I felt very warm and good on both concerts. :D


There were very fine days in Miyako city!

I loved it! ;)




There was our 1st concert on 2nd day in Miyako.

I enjoyed sharing good time with nice audience. :D




There was free time after concert in hotel, so I was occupied to work for next week's concert. ;)

I felt good! :D




There was our 2nd concert in Yamada town next day.

Concert hall was not enough big, so our orchestra was smaller then.


It was also good time to share happy time with nice audience. :)




I headed to Tokyo just after concert in Yamasda town yesterday.

It was long travel(about 6 hours), but everyting went well and on time. ;)


I took Shinkansen from Morioka to Tokyo.

It was very comfortable! ;)





It was fantastic days during my stay in Miyako city.

Fine blue sky and sunshine with about 15 degrees. :D



I hope to see them next year too! ;)

Enjoying fun time!

It's getting hot day by day.

I'm enjoying to work in my small farm. :)





I was free from orchestra works for several weeks, so I could back to orchestra works with nice and positive energy! ;)





After rehearsal, our orchestra started little tour to Tokyo and Iwate. ;)



In Tokyo, we gave private concert for our sponcers. :)

It's really nice opportunity for showing our appreciation to them.




After concert, I visited bar which my best friend Taka began last year. ;)
