‘Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything. Musical innovation is full of danger to the State, for when modes of music change, the fundamental laws of the State always change with them.’ Plato.
The place where children, from an early age starts something new is always home. It means an environment for the first steps for the child is meaningful. So the first and more important duty of parents should be to create a positive natural environment for the children where they can grow and develop their brains as well as different skills.
Having all the tools for creating natural environment for the children to learn and improve new skills and make their brain growth, Mose Toidze Museum House opened Mose Toidze Art Sunday School, where children from age 6 can study music, art and painting. In order to provide a high international professional level, up-to-date musical training The British Georgian Music Academy was invited to guide and support young music student.
On March 31 Mose Toidze Museum House hosted BGMA concert were the students of the school played and sang some pieces of music with famous pianists, a violinist and an opera singer and also gave an exhibition of their paintings. The school showed the techniques and strategies of their teaching methodology. According to Mike Ward co-director of the school with Keti Ward, the process of teaching should be a fun and cool activity that serves that purpose especially at an early age. And besides, when giving musical concerts with professional musicians children find it more interesting. They may get inspired and may work harder with music seeing their parents perform with them. It’s another challenge and the motivation of BGMA, adds Keti Ward, and the school for parents is free. Our school can equip children with powerful tools to build their communication and social skills.
‘Music, art and art therapy provides an effective way for the children to understand themselves, other people and the world around them…’ says Keti Bendeliani, the director of the museum and welcomes everybody to hold cultural and social activities at the museum.
