Takahiro Suzuki


This is Takahiro Suzuki, bass trombone.
My basic diet is 2 cups of rice per meal, so I eat a lot and pour energy into my performances. "Bastro" is said to be the instrument that takes the most breath, so it uses physical strength.
I also have an instrument called the contrabass trombone, and I'm looking forward to the time when it will be unveiled at the New Japan Philharmonic.
