Euphonium day

It was an Euphonium day for me yesterday. :D


I had good time with my Euphonium students at noon and afternoon. :)

They are practicing very hard. ;)





I bought new study book yesterday.

I had little time before teaching, so I enjoyed little bit of it then. ;)

It will be fun!! :D




And in the evening, I enjoyed masterclass and mini concert by our hero Brian Bowman!! :D

It was very nice to meet Brian again in Osaka!

I think I met him last time was in 2012 in Linz(Austria). ;)



I got many ideas by his teaching and performance. :)

I'll work hard for my future!! :D

Enjoying rehearsal

I can enjoy to see sky in the morning. ;)




After Bolero concert, we started rehearsal for Mahler's 3rd Symphony without resting day.

I've survived!

There was our orchestra's first concert this year last weekend. :)

There were 3 parts in the concert such as "with Saxophone soloist"(1st part), "Orchestra pieces"(2nd part) and "Wind band pieces with juniou high school students"(3rd part).


Bolero by M.Ravel was in the program and there was also "Prelude to 3rd Act from Lohengrin" by R.Wagner.

It was hard and it was like an orchestra audition for Trombone. :) ;)


It was hard one, but I've survived!!! :D




After this hard concert, there is Mahler's 3rd Symphony without rest day!!

What a life for Trombone player! :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. ;)
