2008 Elementary School Championship: Mama Elementary

From the Japan Wind Orchestra and Ensemble Competition in 2008, this is Mama Elementary performing "Ikaruga." Part of the Championship 2008.


The cultural differences here are the reason for this astounding display of mastery. I recently listened to a NYC radio program about how the Chinese language is by its nature much more tonal, lending to children developing their sense of pitch naturally. This, coupled with the fact that China, Japan, and other Eastern cultures begin training students who show aptitude in music, althetics, or science from the age of 3 onwards, shows how a performance like this from children so young is possible.
