Musical notes

An opportunity for piano lovers to test their skill



In harmony Pianist Monica Papp

“Music is for everyone,” says Monica Papp who successfully organised a piano competition in Hyderabad last year. The people of Andhra Pradesh who are between 8-18 years can participate this year. The scheduled dates for the competitions are December 15, 21 and 22.The registration process closes on December 12. Through this competition, Monica wishes to spread awareness about piano and inform people the role music plays in developing multiple intelligences in a child. Her mission is to promote western classical music in India and to provide an enriching musical experience for students, parents, teachers and everyone involved. “Hyderabad is slowly opening up to Western culture and I am hopeful to inform people about the beauty and magic of the Western Classical Music. Study in any kind of music is very important for everybody - especially for children. Research proves that learning western classical music contributes unequivocally to the positive development of the human brain enhancing coordination, concentration and memory,” says Monica Papp.

According to Monica music can speak more than words. And those who understand music would agree that playing the right notes is just the beginning. Creating music involves making those notes your own and then developing your own melody. A student of piano, who wishes to perform professionally, is required to invest about 10 to 12 years. But what is equally important, especially in today’s age, is to develop an appreciation for music. Everybody need not become a performer but can develop an ear for music. Those who are interested in participating in the Piano Competition can call on 9985353575.
