Love to practice

I've been loving to practice for myself since I was 13 years old(when I started to play the Euphonium).

I always have my goal in my mind and I love to walk(run?) to there at anytime!

My goal is always very far, but it's never too far! ;)



I enjoyed my practice yesterday too. ;)



Worked on Bassoon etudes for Euphonium.

It works very well. :)




I gave Euphonium private lesson in the afternoon at the ESA music academy in Osaka.

It's always my big pleasure working with them. :)




It was not fine day yesterday.

We got very hard rain sometimes during the day.

It's very unstable weather thesedays.




Dinner was my favorite "Home made Gyoza"!! :D

It was yummy!!!

Very hard tour is done!

Very hard school concert tour is finally over! :D

It was very tough, but I survived!!


I can say, it's not good idea at all to perform in the school gymnasium with more than 35 degrees!!!





I could make my practice time in the hotel room during tour. ;)




It's in rainy time in Japan now, but we didn't have rain day during tour!! :)

We were so lucky! :D

No Concert day

I had a day with no concert(but there was rehearsal) in the middle of our tour this time.


It was nice to stay in the hotel until late morning.

I spent good time with my job "ironing". ;)




I moved to Miyako city from Morioka city by bus.

It took about 2.5 hours, but it was nice to take bus in nice nature views. :D





I practiced little bit after taking some rest in the hotel in Miyako. :)




Then, there was rehearsal in the evening.

It was very hard day!! :)




Maestro had very nice T-shirt! ;)
