Students Piano Recital 2018

Short Poem: Visiting Feelings

 

Grateful to share this beautiful rhyme “Visiting Feelings" with students and parents in the Recital.

Lauren Rubenstein, the author, is a licensed clinical psychologist. She also teaches yoga and mindfulness to children and adolescents.

“Visiting Feelings” invites children to explore and observe the present moment by using their senses. It encourages children to recognize and befriend their feelings and emotions in a positive manner. By deepen the understanding of their inner world (inner voices), it cultivates and enhances their emotional intelligence.

Understand the range of feelings and emotions will definitely strengthen our musical interpretation skills. If we only focus on technique, theory, structure, historical background of the music but without any feelings and emotions towards it, we are not truly and fully experience the spirit, beauty, and the sensation of music.

Musical Picture

 

It's awesome to have all the audience, parents and students engaged in this activity. We are thrilled by your enthusiasm, it's overwhelming! :D

Through interactive activities: "Guess the Song Name" and "Matching Music with Pictures", students /audience see how the composer creates an amusing musical picture of penguins waddling about and sliding down snow banks. She uses sounds, just as artists use colors, to paint a picture of a scene or a story. Composers can choose among many different types of sounds - or notes, rhythm, and dynamic - to create many different colors. Different ways of playing these notes - such as legato or staccato - add more variety to a composers' palette.
