Enjoyed my music life!

I enjoyed my orchestra works after great and very relaxed holidays!! :D


Hard works and relaxed holidays, both are very important for our life.

I really felt that last few weeks. ;)



I enjoyed orchestra rehearsals! :)



The concert day was rain... :(

This is my raining day style. ;)



Concert was in very nice looking concert hall! ;)



There were 2 concerts a day(in the afternoon and the evening).

It was not easy day, but I enjoyed it! :)




I'll be in holidays period again for about 2 weeks. :D

There are many things what I want to do in this period, so I'm very exciting!! :D

It's getting warm

It's getting warm these days. :)

I feel even "hot" in the daytime sometimes.



I walked a little in daytime on Sunday.

It was very nice to feel nature and Spring. ;)




Fine day makes my day happy!! :D

I enjoyed my practice afterwards. ;)



I took some pieces from my library which I didn't see long time.

It's very nice to work nice pieces again and think(imagine) for my future concerts(recitals). ;)

I've been planning to edit my private DVDs since more than a year, and I finally did and finish all of them yesterday!! :D

I feel so happy and free now! ;)


Of course I'm enjoying my practice too. :)



I joined my wife Ai's wind band rehearsal yesterday evening.

It's always fun to play with good friends who all are enjoying playing music in weekends! :D


When we got home after rehearsal, we enjoyed cold beer immediately! ;)

That was great!!!



After the middle of May, my schedule would be crazy busy. So I'll enjoy my happy holidays now!!! :D

Enjoying music and the Spring
After good rest period(no concert for almost 2 weeks!) from the orchestra works, I'm enjoying my orchestra life.
I feel more happy and better on my performance now! ;)

I performed in really nice concert hall last weekend!!
There are several nice concert halls in Osaka! ;)

Practicing goes very well. :D

There are many nice cherry blossoms in Japan now. :)
I went to park few times with my wife Ai and we felt the Spring. :)

Cherry blossoms are very nice! ;)

After having happy time outside, I had good practice on Euphonium in the evening! ;)

Happy dinner after concerts
There were 2 family(children) concerts yesterday.

2 times(or more times) performance a day is not always easy at all for me, but it was great that I realised the audience really enjoyed them. :)

I invited my student who just moved to Osaka a week ago for his continuing music study for dinner.
I hope he studies very hard as much as I did in Europe(ore more of course!!) and get happy future with music! ;)

What a chance!
I(and my family) moved to Osaka from Matsuyama in Summer 2015. So it's already 1 and half year now. :)
We all spent good time with nice friends and good feeling in Osaka. ;)

Last weekend, I had very happy surprise encounter at band rehearsal.
I joined my wife Ai's band rehearsal last weekend.
There were some visiters who is considering to become its member at that rehearsal.

One of them was moved to Osaka(Hirakata city where I'm living now!) from Matsuyama a year ago and she was connected with me by many different ways!!!

-Satomi was kindergarten teacher of my nephew(son of Ai's sister) in Matsuyama.
-I went to teach her high school band when she was high school student several times.
-She was playing at the amateur band in Matsuyama which I was playing before I left to Europe.
-She was from same junior high school wind band as me and Ai!!!
-She chose same wind band as Ai from 5 or 6 wind bands in same area!!

What a chance!! :D

We all are very very surprised!!
She should join that band definitely! ;)

With Satomi and Ai after band rehearsal(Satomi plays the Euphonium!).

I'm free for few days from orchestra works now, so I'm enjoying my own practicing. :)

Nice nature view gives me relaxed mind and good energy as always. ;)

Lastly, one thing what I knew few weeks ago.

Did you know the volume control buttons of earphone which comes with iPhone lately works on Mac as well??
I didn't know that...
It's nice to know and use it. ;)

Happy things
I'm always enjoying wonderful time with good friends, good students and colleagues.

I visited one junior high school wind band for teaching few days ago.
It was my first visit to there, but I had really happy and fun time with them. :)

But it was not easy to take train(with 3 times changes) with 2 instruments...

Another day, I invited some friends to my house for dinner. :D

It was very fun!!! :D
Thank you for your coming! ;)

Nice nature views always make me relaxed and happy. :)

I continue my practice well. :)
Making good balance is not easy as always, but I'm enjoying both Trombone and Euphonium. ;)

Of course, orchestra works goes well. ;)

It's still cold in the morning and the evening in Japan, but I hope Spring is coming! :)
