I was lucky enough to spend a year in Japan where I met lots of great people, did a lot of travelling and enjoyed playing plenty of music. Living within a completely foreign culture never gets old. There’s always a new experience waiting just around the corner!
I had a very welcoming Japanese host family and a lot of great students who taught me all about Japanese life and culture. I entertained children as Piccolo the Pixie. I made a lot of new friends including a bunch of Japanese hippies who loved to jam!
I had a great time performing in various cities in Japan including Toyohashi,Nagoya,Osaka,Hakone and Yamanakako.
I was contracted as a resident pianist-singer at XIV Resort Trust Hotel in Yamanakako. I spent many nights performing to the back-drop of Mount Fuji and meeting guests from around the country and overseas.
