It was after a week which was no orchestra works.

It was a kind of fresh feeling! ;)



Before go to rehearsal, I had good practice time for basis at home. :)

It was very hot as usual, but I felt good on working basis carefully.




Orchestra rehearsal was for next Monday's concert.

I felt good! :D

Work hard with happy feeling

I had enjoyable day yesterday. :)


I shared good time by giving Euphonium individual lessons at ESA music academy in the morning.

They are working very serious and hard, so it's easy to concentrate on their works. :)




It's very hot everyday and hard to keep myself healthy.

We should be smart for feeling good in this crazy hot days. ;)




I had good selection time at YAMAHA Atelier Osaka for my new Trombone yesterday afternoon. :D




I'm very happy and excited in welcoming my new buddy!! :D

I found very nice one, and I ask them for customizing it.

So I need to wait more few weeks for that, but very happy for waiting that!! ;)



I got fine vegetables from our farm yesterday!



They are beautiful!! :D

I'm trying to make good balance between Trombone and Euphonium! ;)



Of course, my orchestra works go well. :)

Very happy!!

I'm surviving very hot days these days.

I'm lucky because I have my car.

I don't walk under this crazy strong Sun with over 33 degrees... :(




I worked for e-mailings and contacting to many people in the morning, but I finally concentrated on my practice at noon!! :D

I worked on some solo pieces for my little solo concerts in few months! ;)




I was very very happy to see that my paprikas are changing their color to yellow from green yesterday!! :D

They've been green for many days, and I was worried that I should get them like pimento. ;)

I hope they'll be yellow or red soon!! :D

Hard practice

It's real Summer in Japan now!

It's about 33 degrees(even more often!) everyday and blue sky is like this. ;) 




I had really hard practice with my student Hiroya yesterday afternoon.

We mostly worked on etude with octaves.

I sometimes do this kind of practice by myself, but it works better if you do more than two people.


I love to practice hard, so I'm so satisfied! ;)



In the last part of practice, we played some duos, and I made video recording for one of them.

Watch it from here! :D



After that, we had very delicious Korean BBQ dinner at home. :D ;)

I enjoyed my day!! :)

I supported high school student for her new Trombone choosing.

It's not easy for her to select good one for her.

It was my pleasure to support those activities. :D


We are happy that she met very nice one!! :D




In the late afternoon, I visirted our farm with my family.

We were worried about our farm because there was crazy strong and long raining for several days.
