Today , Tokyo Brass Style visited Oshamambe Junior Hight School .

We performed  a couple of songs as demonstration and then  students of the brass band let us listen a song that we will play together tomorrow . They are pretty cool ! I had nothing to say !!

Afterwords we practiced the song together .

 

I’ve heard most members of Tokyo Brass Style are from brass bands in junior high or high school but me, I was in a basketball club and kyudo club then.

So it was my first time to play with brass band !!  Appreciate for the great opportunity .

We will be the one on a stage tomorrow !!

Hey guys!! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita!!

 

Today’s lunch : )

I do love having meal in Yayoi-Ken . Tastes like home cooking of someone’s mom.

 

I had a recording all day with jazz fusion piano trio  band Lab.

I brought two bass guitars in the case… 4 strings Fender jazz bass and 5 strings Warwick .

This is the sound engineer Hashimoto-san !! I named him “Hasshi “. Cute nickname ,isn’t it : D ?

The sound became awesome by his great mixing ! Feels like I got great chops  ; )!lol

We recorded 4 songs.  Most likely we’ll record two more songs.

The keyboard player Kodai Taniguchi got the date.  I can’t to wait to listen to it …!!

Got it ..?

 

 

 

Hey guys !! I’m a bass guitar player Juna Serita !!

 

Today ‘s Juna’s Kitchen !!

・fried vegetables ( shiitake mushroom / green onions / carrot / plant egg

・fried meat

・miso soup which has seaweed and tofu

 

How healthy , isn’t it : D ?

 

 

I had bass lessons today too .

One of my students asked me how to improve before next weekend because she will have a gig for the first time in her life .

I checked she play the songs . Actually she really did well .  There are some  points but I was wondering what the things that she can fix before the gig are .

 

Then I focused on her physical performance .

 

I wrote it down on white board .( it’s Japanese, sorry if you don’t understand it . )

It means

・Don’t look left hand too much 👀

・Mive the body to music 🎶

・Glissando(it’s only not physical performance )

・Move the neck

 

At the end of the lesson , I took video of her performance .

I’m pretty sure she got it !! She looked totally different, she is killing it !!

I was so glad like it happened to me . Yey yey !! I hope she will be satisfied about her    first performance in public!!✨

 

After the lesson , I went to a hookah place  for the first time in a while .

Actually it’s my cup of tea . I can chill . : )

I finally made a ring with puff !!

That was my goal!  I couldn’t do it well at all ever !!

I can’t make it frequently yet but I’m so happy , that’s such a big step : D

 

See ya !!
