MRV hosts Music Appreciation Workshop
"If man is the best creation of God then music is the best creation of man,"
says Kavita Sanghvi, Principal MET Rishikul Vidyalaya (MRV).
MRV presented a music appreciation workshop, which was held at MET to
enhance the appreciation of music among parents. The workshop was conducted
by Mr. Rajesh Mehta, an independent film producer and music enthusiast. The
purpose of this workshop was to empower parents to use music as a medium to
educate and elevate the conscious levels of their children.
The audience was first exposed to a video of a medley of songs, comprising
of dissonant music and inappropriate lyrics. The audience reacted to the
unbearable sounds by covering their ears and requested for the music to be
stopped. Thereafter, they were shown a video clip of soft and melodious
music, which lifted their spirits and kept them attuned.
Research has proven that soft music strengthens a child's intuitive thinking
skills, induces relaxation, improves memory and enhances a child's body
movement; whereas unmusical sounds with crude lyrics arouses aggressive
instincts in children and stimulates them in the wrong direction.
Parents who attended the workshop earlier shared the benefits they received,
thereby encouraging the audience to follow suit.
This workshop was only an introductory session to familiarize parents with
the benefits children can gain from music. It will be followed by a four
session music appreciation workshop in the month of February and March.
