Matsumoto Visits International Music School For Teenagers
When asked to come to the school, Matsumoto gladly accepted the request: “If it’s for the kids, I’ll do it with pleasure”. He also spoke highly of the school’s new program called JAM PROGRAM. He thinks it’s a great thing to connect the children to one another and making new friends of music.
Tak talked about his experiences of being in a band at the event. He furthermore elaborated on various things from “How B’z succeeded”, “How I practiced playing the guitar” to “What’s a band?”, “What’s rock?”. Afterwards, they went on to a Question & Answer session where members of LIVEJAM could ask Matsumoto questions and he would try to reply in an easy to understand manner.
One of the children asked “When you were young, what would you do in your free time?” to which Tak replied “I played Super Mario. I was really good at it!”.
Another question was “Recalling past live performances, what moment will forever be in your memory?” to which Tak replied “Probably when Inaba suddenly disappeared from the stage. I could still hear him singing, but I couldn’t see him. When I wondered where he was, he actually fell off the stage. But even though he fell off the stage, he was still singing!”
Everybody was very delighted to have Matsumoto-san as a guest. They were listening very closely to everything he had to say and enjoyed the time with him. To finish off the event, they took a group picture:
