My first experience of playing in a elementary school I would really like to thank the great members Yukari Inoue Sohei Saito and You Hatakeyama.
I wanted to show how interesting improvising music is but to fit all of it in 90min was a hard job. Once I did it there are many points I would like to change but I think I did my best at that time.
The children react most to the rhythm. We talked about the harmony and the children gave some wonderful images. I wanted to do more on improvising using recorders but that didn’t go that well.
We had a corner to sing a song in different rhythms. At first they were singing really quite but after we went through Jazz, Rock latin by the end they were singing in about 10 times louder voices. So much pure energy it really filled my heart.
The teacher I used to learn from said after that He felt really happy the feeling beyond about the music was good of bad. These words will keep me going on!
