EPN seminar: Education of Art

Share it:
EPN organized a seminar on the 26th of January with Turkish symphony composer and pianist Muhiddin Dürrüoğlu. The artist who began his musical career at a very early age and before long made a name for himself with his talent throughout the world, talked about his musical journey and the perception and education of art in Belgium.

Following a pleasant breakfast with friends, the composer and pianist, Muhiddin Dürrüoğlu, took the stage. He started his lecture by asking each person in the room to introduce themselves. Then, with his sincere attitude, the pianist talked about what a parent should do for his child’s music education. Dürrüoğlu strongly suggested that the earlier a child starts playing a musical instrument, the better it is. He then gave an example: “Music is a language just like French or Dutch is. And it is a common knowledge that it is always easier to teach a language at an early age.” The child’s motivation may not remain the same throughout the education; but the important factor affecting his music education is having a teacher who can build a strong relationship with the student, he noted. Upon a question from the attendees about whether being a successful musician is possible only with innate talent, the pianist underscored that it is the combination of talent, knowledge and practice that leads to success. At the second part of the program, the pianist played sections from the compositions of Bach, Mozart and himself, concluding the event with a fascinating musical feast.
