ミュージック・エデュケーター/歌手

―音楽の楽しさを伝え、感性を育むー

3歳よりピアノを始め、中学、高校では吹奏楽部にてバスクラリネット、クラリネットを担当。
1996年京都大学教育学部入学後は、同大ビックバンドに所属しデューク・エリントンを演奏。ジャズの世界に魅了される。この頃、市川芳枝氏に師事し、歌うこと、音楽だけではなく、その生き様に学ぶ。

2007年、ピアニスト・バリーハリス氏らを講師とするジャズワークショップ(山口県萩市)に参加。ジャズ界の巨匠達の演奏はもちろん、音楽の楽しみ方、愛と厳しさに満ちた指導法に衝撃を受ける。ここでのご縁で、2013年にはベース奏者リチャード・デイヴィス氏に招かれ、同氏自宅に三ヶ月間ホームスティしながら、多くの学びを授かる。
また、歌手シーラ・ジョーダンとも、京都での偶然の出会いをきっかけに交流を続けるなど、国内外のミュージシャンから刺激を受け、彼らの思想と表現に触れ続けている。

現在は、演奏活動を行う一方、保育者や子どもへの指導を通じて、「共に音を奏でる喜び」を伝えている。また、絵本や紙芝居の朗読活動では、自ら子ども達の感性との共鳴を楽しんでいる。

Music Educator/ Vocalist 

Sharing the joy of music, nurturing a creative sensibility

 

Yuki began playing the piano at the age of three and played the clarinet as well as the bass clarinet as a part of a wind ensemble during middle and high school.

 

After she was accepted to Kyoto University in 1996, Yuki joined the university's big band and played Duke Ellington repertoires which led to her fascination with jazz music. She also studied under Yoshie Ichikawa around the same time and learned through her not only singing but also how to live life.

 

Yuki participated in a jazz workshop hosted by the jazz legend, pianist Barry Harris, held in Hagi city, Yamaguchi prefecture in 2007. She was amazed by the way they enjoyed the music and pedagogy they applied, filled with love and discipline, on top of their thrilling performances. She became acquainted with a jazz bassist, Richard Davis, and was offered to study under him for three months at his residence in 2013. In addition, Yuki has been in touch with the singer Sheila Jordan since a coincidental encounter in 2009 .Yuki is constantly inspired by the philosophies and expressions of both domestic and international musicians with her gentle spontaneity.

 

Lately, Yuki has been focusing on “the joy of playing music together” through teaching music to nursery teachers and children, while also performing regularly. She enjoys resonating with her love of music with kids during her read-aloud projects of picture books and picture-card performances.
