A Local Perspective on Life in Tsukuba, Ibaraki, Japan.

University of Tsukuba Marching Band

Dimaks took a couple of videos of a marching band from the University of Tsukuba performing in Tsukuba Center. I’m so impressed with the sound quality of this video. It’s amazing what cellphones can do these days!

See the second video on his blog.

The quality of this band is just incredible. I have always marvelled at the quality of music education in Japan. I remember listening to an elementary school band when I lived in Fukushima and thinking that — to my untrained ears — they were as good as any adult band I had ever heard. In Canada, an elementary school bands are generally fun to watch, but I wouldn’t rate their sound quality as being concert-worthy.
