What happened at Georg Mangold School?
In the fall of 2018, the Georg Mangold School in Bischofsheim received a piano from the Carl Bechstein Foundation. After one and a half years the school takes stock.
Mrs. Maier from the Maier Music School writes: “The Foundation Piano is located in the auditorium of the Georg Mangold School and has delighted both the students and the audience with its wonderful sound in our recent music school concerts. The students were able to practice extensively before the concert and present their pieces at the concert using the piano’s many timbres.”
And the instrument is also used in ensemble work. Music teacher Mrs. Plogmann reports,
“The instrument is a great enrichment, especially for the school choir. Finally, rehearsals can take place again in the auditorium with the new piano. This offers more freedom of movement, a stage, good acoustics, and the good-sounding instrument which all have a large share in the quality of the choir work. The new piano also brings a significant enrichment to the music lessons. Movement songs are much more fun with a piano in a large room, especially in grades 1 and 2. Movement tasks for older students in grades 3/4 can be designed more flexibly with the use of the piano. Of course, even simple song accompaniment in class, regardless of grade level, is much more enjoyable with a well-sounding and tuned instrument. In short: the new piano is simply fun, thank you very much for that.”
We are happy about the intensive use and wish much joy with the piano!
