Interactive Concerts
Interactive Concerts
Believing in recitals outside of the typical "formal performance," Yoshi practices the type of performance that involves audience collaboration. These concerts go beyond a lecture and performance setting. The "interactive concert" allows the audience to have a clearer idea of what is going on in the mind and the heart of the performer, resulting in a more holistic experience.
National Chamber Winds
National Chamber Winds
The National Chamber Winds basic instrumentation is a double woodwind quintet, traditionally called a dectet, consisting of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 horns and 2 bassoons. The ensemble often adds a string bass to many pieces, sounding an octave below the 2nd bassoon part, adding a bit of bass to help ground the ensemble. They most often play as a full ensemble, with a conductor, but also perform smaller chamber concerts of varying instrumentation.
Teaching/Pedagogy
Teaching/Pedagogy
This is Yoshi's true passion. His love for teaching has driven him to begin pedagogical projects to further advance the study of the double bass. His current studio of private double bass students (in addition to his violin, viola, and cello students) are winning many youth orchestra auditons around the area and show much potential in leading happy and successful futures.
