This year I am helping to make a teachers' textbook and the script
for the NHK Education TV school programs "Tutu Ensemble". I will
keep working for the possibility of educational TV school program
through this program. Please give us all the encouragement you can!
Now in 1998, I am writing the textbook for "Ganba-recorder", a
3-minute section of "Tutu Ensemble" in the close discussion with
the script writers about how we can best realize the content of
this in a TV school program. The two performers, Ken Tanaka, an
actor and a good performer on the Quena, and Asami Miwa (taking
the role of a student) produce a warm, father-daughter-like atmosphere.
I am giving them recorder lessons. Both of them are very studious
and we surely can expect their quick progress.
I want to put various educational ideas in the program, like a happy
introduction to the recorder performance, teaching methods for the
recorder, or improvising while showing various incidents which can
happen when the heart is involved with sounds relationship. I ask
you for your best encouragement.
