VIVALDI SEASONS – Haunted Houses and Spooky Music by famous composers!

Our early childhood music classes will embrace the October theme of “Fall ideas” with songs about leaves, squirrels, nuts, and of course, pumpkins! We add slightly “spooky” song and rhyme concepts with cats, haunted houses, ghosts and jack o’ lanterns. Nothing over the top scary, simply a surprising “BOO!” now and again which is always a recipe for giggles. Our all-time favorite part of October is the music we listen to!

Faculty, staff, students, and friends gathered to enjoy lunch, cupcakes, face painting, and a photo booth. “Our third location delivers the same high-quality education that our students have come to expect. We’re continuing our proven curricula of private lessons, group voice lessons, strings ensemble, and our very own early-childhood music program – Vivaldi Seasons,” Zeljko Pavlovic.

Thank you to our Vivaldi friends, families, staff and faculty for joining us in the celebrations!

Vivaldi Music Academy is one of Houston’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies

We have so much to celebrate this month – a new location, our 5th birthday AND being named Houston Business Journal’s 100 Fastest growing companies in Houston! Thank you to all of our Vivaldi families and friends for your continuous support and for DREAMING BIG with us!

The back to school season can be hectic. Sometimes simply getting back into the swing of things takes some preparation. Here are some easy tips to ease the transition!

Lock down your schedule

Most kids respond well to consistent schedules, so use a calendar to ensure everyone know what activities are expected each day. This includes both lessons and practice times! Also consider including a rewards system that will help make the connection from consistent practicing and hard work to beautiful musical results.

Set realistic expectations for practicing

Make sure everyone is on the same page! Younger children may need shorter practice times compared to older children. Also, if your child is overtired from school and other activities, try to reschedule a time when they are well-rested and enthusiastic for learning music.

Stay organized

Come to music lessons with all the essentials! If your child is especially forgetful, consider creating a checklist and posting it on the door.

Befriend your child’s music teacher

You are more than welcome to sit in on at least the first few lessons, which will help ease anxiety and also allows you to get a feel for their teaching style. Communication is key for everyone!

Don’t forget the practice journal

A practice journal can be an incredibly valuable tool, when both student and teacher are using it effectively. Sit down with your child and review the journal each week.

Learn about our ensemble performance groups – Vivaldi Voices, Vivaldi Rocks, and Vivaldi Strings!

This fall we have special performances planned for our ensemble groups. These classes are wonderful opportunities to learn from peers and friends, be a part of a team, reinforce what has been learned in lessons and participate in fun performances around Houston. We’re looking forward to our Halloween performance at Hermann Park next in October 2018.

#VivaldiGoesToKennedyCenter | Adventures

Logo for Kennedy Center

On Friday June 23 2017, forty-three Vivaldi Music Academy students took the stage at the D.C. venue. The curtain went up at 7:30 sharp, when students, teachers, family, and friends were delighted in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

On behalf of the National Culture Center (to be come the Kennedy Center), 1962

“I am certain that after the dust of centuries has passed over our cities, we, too, will be remembered not for victories or defeats in battle or in politics, but for our contribution to the human spirit."

IT ALL BEGAN ON REGISTRATION DAY

Registration for the recital opened at 9AM on January 21 at both VMA facilities. Recognizing the value of this opportunity, parents assembled outside the studios at 4AM to gain a position in line, and – in true rock-concert fashion - spots were filled in five minutes once doors opened.
