I wrote that my aim was to get up in the morning this year. Actually I thought that it would be difficult but I have had some appointments that meant that I really had to get up a few times in a row and it is helping me change my life style.
To tell you why I had to get up that early is that I was playing in a kindergarten. I had to be there by 8am which was so hard for me. All the children were so much full of energy hard to believe for me.
This job came to me introduced by Ms.Junko Harada a violin player we went to the same university and she helped me so much when I wrote my first strings quartet it was a great joy to be able to play together again. All the players except me were classical players so I felt nervous playing in the ensemble but it was a very good experience. They asked me to write a arrangement for I got rhythm so I arranged it for violin cello wood bass and flute. It was interesting to write down what we normally just improvise. They played it perfectly regardless that I gave the music on the spot.
The children were listing to the music using all there bodies and there is so much to learn from them. I really do want to do more concerts for children. I have already done it for my school so please let me know if there is anywhere to play.
