About Vivaldi Music


I have been very impressed by the caliber of teachers as well as by their general joyful attitude. My teachers have been very focused on making sure that I am not only learning but also enjoy the journey of musical exploration. - Karen C. (Violin)

I just started and have had only one lesson but really like my teacher. The music room was very nice, as well. Also, kudos to the lovely ladies at the front desk. So warm and lovely! Unfortunately, one doesn’t see that anymore. They are a major “front door” asset. - Nikki W. (Cello)

From front desk staff to lesson instructor, everyone is very nice and welcoming. My 6 year old LOVES her lessons and has been so excited to come home and practice. She’s making great progress which I attribute to her very supportive piano teacher whom she adores. - Emmelia K. (Piano)

I first appreciate the pleasant atmosphere the staff and owner create; second the level of professionalism along with skill of the teachers. Third, I also appreciate the accommodating attitudes in fulfilling our personal needs and schedules, plus makeup days. I also must say, I am very pleased with the facility, the decor and the cleanliness. -Gabriel M.

Experienced and friendly staff. My child loves her classes and instructors. I love the positive environment and encouragement my child receives from her instructors and staff. It’s also great that you offer so many different class options. Location is very convenient for us and nice facilities. - Katia D (Piano)

Having found an environment in which you can instantly see the professionalism and passion for music that the instructors are able to share with their students is priceless. - Natalie R.

My instructor has been very attentive, supportive and patient. His expertise is clear as he is always able to pinpoint specific things that I should work on. The evening lessons are convenient for my schedule and, even late in the day, everyone has a positive attitude and is pleasant company. - Adam H. (Violin)

Competent teachers who seem to be very “in touch” with teaching and learning. I like the fact that they themselves are students, teach in some other capacity and are an active part of a community of artists. I feel these aspects bring a different dynamic and passion to their teaching that a musician teaching at home wouldn’t necessarily have even though they might be a very talented. I like the way Vivaldi offers different and unique opportunities for students to perform. I am very impressed and proud that our Academy will be performing at Carnegie Hall – even though we are not available to participate. The HBU Recital Hall is a beautiful and wonderful venue for our recitals. These events excite families to participate and inspire the students to do their best. We love Vivaldi Academy! Thank you. - Jimmy C. (Piano)
