Had good time with Toby

BSO(Boston Symphony Orchestra) was in Osaka yesterday as a part of their Japan tour.

It's pity that I couldn't listen their concert(I knew about this concert too late...), but it was very nice to meet and had coffee together with Toby(Oft) who is the Principal Trombone of the BSO before concert. :)



It's always very nice to have conversation with Trombone player from the orchestra and talk about our job and life.

It's so pity that they only stay several hours only for performing concert and didn't stay in Osaka this time...


I really hope that they stay in Osaka next time and we have longer time for enjoying our friendship!! :D

Thank you Toby for making time for me! ;)



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

It's tough to play in the wind band! :D

But it was enjoyable time. ;)

Enjoying happy days

My orchestra's school concert tour goes well.

We did 4 concerts this week and more 2 concerts left which will be next week. ;)


I needed to change train few times yesterday morning for going to school.

I had to wait 25 mins for next train!

It's not normal in Japan I think...


But it was not bad to be in nice countryside area. :)



It was very old train which I took yesterday.

Big fan was there. :)




I felt really nice with this nice blue sky! :D




Concert with the program by L.Bernstein is always exciting and fun!! :D




I cleaned my Euphonium in the evening.

Everything is clean now!

I'm ready!! :D

My son Asahi was in hospital for about 2 weeks, but he finally backed to home last weekend!! :D



It was not easy time for him, but he enjoyed those hard days in his good way.

I'm proud of him! ;)

Lucky man

I'm having kind of busy days with rehearsals and concerts, but I'm trying to enjoy them. :)


My Euphonium practice goes well. ;)



It's not easy to balance between Trombone and Euphonium, but it's necessary to make it for me.

So, my private practice is very important for making my life good. :)



I'm enjoying my concerts. :)

I always feel that I'm so lucky man to perform in nice concert halls as job. :)




I appreciate things around me and keep enjoying my music life!! :)
