The Smallest Drum Major

undokai tokyo marching japanese kindergarten

It’s a small world. Marching Performance at a Japanese kindergarten.

Earlier in the year I posted about my class of five-year-olds performing the Jurassic Park theme tune for the ongakukai (Music Festival). Those particular kids have long since moved on to Elementary School, having been replaced with this year’s batch of nen-cho students. Not to be outdone by their predecessors, these new kids did a marching performance for our annual undōkai (Sports Day) that once again showed how amazingly talented these little guys and girls are.

    At 5 years old i wasn’t aloud passed the Black line in the avenue.
    Drum playing in that video, tremendous!
