Art is as old as man. It may well be the most ancient form of communication. Studies even suggest that the emergence of music in particular seems to coincide with the emergence of the sense of group identity in early modern humans, the origin of society (Nicholas Conard - University of Tübingen, Germany), while there is rising suspicion that it was used as a form of communication before the invention of language.
Music moves us, it can transmit emotions and ideas, it can affect our mood, it can even affect how we perceive visual images. Not confined by words, colours or frames, music can communicate feelings which cannot be otherwise described. Turn off the sound in any horror movie, and it stops being frightening. Add the wrong king of music to a monologue and it suddenly makes no sense. Add the right kind of music and it is suddenly much more powerful. Accompany any form of art with music and it is immediately elated to new levels. It becomes more communicative, more understandable.
Music is the mother of all arts.
In the kingdom of musical instruments, the piano reigns supreme. It is not only one of the largest musical instruments, it is also the one that offers the largest variety of expression and playing potential with unrivalled variety of power, depth and versatility. No other instrument can offer as many notes as the piano. It can be the protagonist or the accompanist, it can replace an entire orchestra or join it. It has the ability to accompany soloists without drowning them out, while it can be heard above a philharmonic. A percussive instrument, it also carries strings and keys. A composer can use it to create works for the whole orchestra. It has the ability to play both melody and harmony at the same time.
The piano is the king of all musical instruments.
Welcome to Mother of Arts Piano studio.
It is said that music is the mother of all arts. It is also said that the piano is the king of all musical instruments. I have dedicated my life to the music of the piano. I have studied -and practiced- how to play it, how to teach it, how not to teach it, as well as the physical, mental, emotional and cognitive effects it can have on the human brain. I now feel it is time for me to share all I have learned. I am Eleni Zeniou and I am a piano teacher.
