"After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music."
Yes, this is very true and this is what we teach our students here in Queen Mary’s School, Northend, “NEVER BE SILENT IN LIFE” music is a channel through which one can show the inner being of himself/herself to the rest of the world. The creation, performance, significance and even the definition of music vary according to culture and social context. Music ranges from strictly organized compositions (and their recreation in performance) to improvisational music. Music can be divided into genres and subgenres, although the dividing lines and relationships between music genres are often subtle, sometimes open to individual interpretation. Within “the arts”, music may be classified as a performing art, a fine art, and auditory art.
To many people in many cultures music is an important part of their way of life. Greek philosophers and ancient Indian philosophers define music as tones ordered horizontally as melodies and vertically as harmonies. Common saying such as ‘the harmony of the spheres’ and ‘it is music to my ears’ point to the notion that music is often ordered and pleasant to listen to.
We at Queen Marys’ School, North End aim to inculcate among the students a genuine desire to learn and grow in music. We aim to make music an integral part of each student’s life. This is done through medium of mass participation in assemblies, participation in different Music Competitions on different levels, Zonal Competitions, class recitals, training of music instruments such as Guitar, Keyboard, Harmonium, Congos and Drum set, regular music classes and individual mentoring. The choir members are ever increasing and learning to take music as a subject of study.
“A painter paints pictures on canvas. But musicians paint their pictures on silence.”
