Teachi-tearu was commissioned by the Komazawa University High School Band. They requested an Okinawan folk song in jazz style, so the themes of "Teachi-tearu" and "Tinsagunu Flower" are quoted. There are two sections in this piece: one is a lively swing style, and the other is lyrical and expressive. Both are enjoyable. Feel free to improvise ad lib according to harmony and style.

This is a revised version for flexible ensemble. While retaining the original resonance and blend of a brass octet, the flute and Eb clarinet are scored an octave above the original. When playing in harmony, a similar instrument grouping helps stabilize the sound. Pay extra attention to the balance between different instrument types.
