MUSIC BECOMES PAINTINGS
Since 2017, we have been holding multimedia recitals where students create paintings inspired by the music they perform. The visualization of music into art is a powerful way for our students to connect with music. They can express their emotions and ideas more creatively, while also enhancing the overall musical experience for both themselves and their audience.
The idea of creating artworks for music came from my own experience of playing piano for the ballet. It was fascinating to see my music come to life by the dancers’ movements on the blank canvas of space. Painting is a fun and effective way for young musicians to express their music. Our students enjoy the process of delivering music, which is abstract onto the canvas. Our teachers help our students with this process by brainstorming together, discussing musical elements, helping them to express their feelings and tell their stories.
This year, we are so grateful for the opportunity to exhibit our students’ artworks at J.P. Licks in Coolidge Corner in Brookline, MA. We hope that the people who visit J.P. Licks will enjoy our students’ interpretations of music in these artworks and even get inspired to play a musical instrument!
