The Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918
music: Richard Rodgers words: Lorenz Hart
Once there was a thing called spring
When the world was writing verses like yours and mine
All the lads and girls would sing
When we sat at little tables and drank May wine
Now April, May and June
Are sadly out of tune
Life has stuck a pin in the boat
Spring is here
Why doesn’t my heart go dancing?
Spring is here
Why isn’t the waltz entrancing?
No ambition leads me
Maybe it’s because nobody needs me
Spring is here
Why doesn’t the breeze delight me?
Why doesn’t the night invite me?
Maybe it’s because nobody loves me
Spring is here, I hear
lyric: Johnny Mercer music: Henry Mancini
Moon River, wider than a mile
I’m crossin’ you in style some day
Old dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever your goin’, I’m goin’ your way
Two drifters, off to see the world
There’s such a lot of world to see
We’re after the same rainbow’s end
Waitin’ round the bend, My huckleberry friend,
Moon River and me

music Erroll Garner words Johnny Burke
Look at me,
I’m as helpless as a kitten up a tree;
And I feel like I’m clingin’ to a cloud
I can’t understand
I get misty, just holding your hand
Walk my way
And a thousand violins begin to play
Or it might be the sound of your hello
That music I hear
I get misty, the moment you’re near
Can’t you see that you’re leading me on?
And it’s just what I want you to do
Don’t you notice how hopelessly I’m lost
That’s why I’m following you
On my own
Would I wander through this wonderland alone
Never knowing my right foot from my left
My hat from my glove
I’m too misty, and too much in love
And too much in love

Those who are aiming to enter a music school from an early age, those who have already studied at a music school, are now enjoying the chorus and brass band in club activities, but you would like to study more professionally at a music school.
There are various relationships between life and music before entering school, such as those who are enrolled. In Japan, choosing a school or taking an examination seems to be a serious turning point and tends to be overly nervous because of the degree of further deciding on the subsequent life.

What a music school can do is limited in time and ability. It’s best not to try everything in your twenties. It is not uncommon for a person who was unable to enter a music school at the age of 18 to enter a music school when he or she was in his 40s or 50s after finishing childcare and parental care.
This is called “recurrent education“. Recurrent includes the meaning of “make it according to the current trend” again, it means “update”, and it is sometimes translated as “regression education” or “return education”.
