Carpenter, Margot Do We Want to Be Like Music? Multicultural- Other,
Music
Why do we care for music so much that we want to sing or dance? Does a good melody do what we want to do? Yes, say Barbara Allen and Robert Murphy, and in this workshop they'll show what Aesthetic Reaism teaches: Music puts opposites together, opposites that we want to put together in our lives! Notes rise and fall, are separate and together. A melody is both energetic and gentle, harsh and sweet. Aren't these same opposites ones we have and want to make sense of? Eli Siegel, the founder of the education Aesthetic Realism, stated in this principle: "All beauty is a making one of opposites, and the making one of opposites is what we are going after in ourselves." Through demonstrations with flute and drum, children will have the thrill of hearing how these two instruments, so different from each other, work together, add to each other! Do we want to be like those wonderful instruments and like notes in a song, which add to each other to make a beautiful meldoy? Do we want to add to all other people and to be added to by them?
