Vivaldi Music Academy takes the stage at New York City’s Carnegie Hall in July 2022

Carnegie Hall, New York City

Carnegie Hall’s unique history is rooted in its magnificent acoustics, the beauty of its three concert halls, and its location in the Big Apple, where it has played a central role in elevating the city into one of the world’s great cultural capitals.

When Carnegie Hall’s cornerstone was laid in 1891, Andrew Carnegie (the Hall’s founding father) proclaimed that “it is probable that this hall will intertwine itself with the history of our country.” This was true from the start when it opened on May 5, 1891, with a spectacular concert that featured Russian composer Pyotr Ilych Tchaikovsky, conducting his own music in his American debut. Since then, its walls have echoed with applause not only for the greatest classical, jazz, and popular musicians, but also for the foremost comedians, authors, social crusaders, world figures, and orators of our time.

Vivaldi Music Academy Plays Carnegie Hall

Enter Vivaldi Music Academy’s own founder and accomplished violinist, Zeljko Pavlovic, and the academy’s talented students. Vivaldi Music Academy had its debut at Carnegie Hall on June 23, 2015, with one concert and over 40 performers in the elegant Weill Recital Hall. 

The event featured a variety of instruments: piano, violin, guitar, voice, and cello, and even a debut from our Vivaldi Strings group and faculty members, Sam Perez, LaDonna Jackson, Yueun Kim, and many others. Director, Zeljko Pavlovic made his debut at the concert with his own son and father—three generations of musicians—as they played Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Previous student, Nicholas Wong, a cellist, also made his debut.

Encore!

Vivaldi Music Academy made an encore performance in 2018 at Carnegie Hall after performing in Venice, Italy at Santa Maria Della Pieta (Vivaldi’s Church), and the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C.

Carnegie Hall inspires families and future musicians to make their debut. We hosted two concerts on July 6 and 7, 2018 where students made their performance debuts and encore performances with over 80 performers. Faculty members who joined us were Matthew Gutwald, Director, Zeljko Pavlovic, and Yueun Kim.

Summer 2022

Vivaldi Music Academy returns to Carnegie Hall in 2022 for the third performance with two concerts on July 5 and July 7 in the Weill Recital Hall and the excitement is palpable! 

For more history about Carnegie Hall, you can visit its website, CarnegieHall.org.

Students at Vivaldi Music Academy perform in bi-annual recitals in Houston at the University of St. Thomas, Houston Baptist University, Rice University, and the Stages Theater. Students also have the opportunity to perform at renowned concert halls including The church of Santa Maria della Pietà (Vivaldi Church) in Venice, the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., and of course, Carnegie Hall in NYC. Please see our How to Prepare for a Recital blog for a better understanding of the steps we take when getting ready for a performance.

How to Prepare for Recitals

Everyone has different methods of how to prepare for a recital. But here are a few things that we all must accomplish before we can give a successful performance.

 

Ask Your Teacher:

Who better to ask than your own teacher what their pre-recital routines are? Your teacher is equipped with knowledge and experience and can impart excellent advice from a personal standpoint.

Stretch and Breathe:

Playing music is as physical as it is mental. Warming up with stretching before practicing and performing is essential for the body to function to its fullest potential. Breathing deeply enhances concentration and relaxes nerves. Try to get good rest the night before the recital as well.

Stage a Perfauxmance:

 By giving a mock performance, your child can play in front of an audience so they will have a perspective of how it will feel during a public recital. Plus, constructive feedback from trusted loved ones can help a child grow and expand their own personal style.

Comfort and Style:

Allow your child to express their individuality through what they want to wear during their recital. Comfort and freedom of movement are crucial to avoiding a “wardrobe malfunction.” But color and flair can help with your child’s self-confidence as well. A large part of your child’s overall recital experience is their comfort level and how they want to present.

Visualize the Performance:

When they are not playing for others, visualizing themselves and giving it their all will help boost confidence and focus. This is important whether the recital is in person or virtual.

And last but not least, Practice, Practice, Practice – Practice really does make “perfect” and when you have practiced your performance until you are comfortable with it, you’ll go into your recital with belief in your abilities. And confidence is key to a successful recital.

Recital Prep 101:

Preparing for a recital takes practice, discipline, and hard work. Encourage your child to visualize their best performance, take deep breaths, focus on the piece they are about to play, and show off their hard work. And most of all, have fun!

Come hear what we have to play!

Students at Vivaldi Music Academy perform in bi-annual recitals in Houston at the University of St. Thomas, Houston Baptist University, Rice University, and the Stages Theater.

Holiday Music Gift Guide

The holidays are here, and the gift of music is at the top of everyone’s wish list! There are a variety of guitars, pianos, and drum sets, plus different sizes of violin – so where do you begin when it comes to picking out the perfect gift? No need to stress! We let the experts at Vivaldi Music Academy put together an easy gift guide for this holiday season.

Give the gift of MUSIC this holiday season!
Guitar Lessons near me

Guitar: Both acoustic and electric guitars are fun (and super popular) holiday gifts.

Where to go: Guitar Center! They offer wonderful options with sets, and you can even score great holiday savings this time of year.

What to get: When it comes to an electric guitar, the Rocketeer Electric Guitar Pack definitely has the wow factor. It has everything your favorite rock-star-to-be needs to get started! If acoustic is more your jam, grab the Rogue Starter Acoustic Guitar. It comes in a variety of colors, so you can customize your pick.

Piano Lessons near me

Piano/Keyboard: A standard 88 key, fully weighted keyboard is a great choice. Semi-weighted keys are fine as well for young beginners, but they will grow out of it quickly. Pro tip: you don’t need to worry about the number series of a piano (for example, Yamaha Aries YPD162), any full sized, 88 key weighted will work great!

Where to go: Amazon, Costco/Sam’s Club, and Guitar Center all have big selections when it comes to keyboards.

What to get: Keep an eye out for brands like Casio and Williams for starter keyboards (they aren’t as pricey!). If you are looking for an upgrade in sound and quality, go for the Yamaha instead. If you want to include a bench, stand, sustain pedal, and music rest, this Casio bundle from Costco is a solid choice.

Violin lessons near me

Violin/Cello: We know this can be a trickier one, but don’t be intimidated! We highly recommend renting a violin or cello from a local violin shop. There are two ways to properly measure a child for a violin. The easiest method is to have the student’s left arm fully extended away from his or her body, and measure from the base of the neck to either the wrist or the center of the palm. The neck-to-wrist measurement will indicate the most comfortable size for the student.

 

Where to go: Lisle’s Violin Shop (2450 Bissonnet St, Houston, TX 77005; (713) 526-4005) and Amati Violin Shop (2315 University Blvd, Houston, TX 77005, (713) 666-6461) are our two top picks. You can trust the experts there will direct you to the right instrument.

What to get: Both places will help to size the student and find the right violin for them. They do rentals and purchases, so you can choose what’s best for you!

Drum Lessons near me

Drum Sets: Electric drum sets are always an exciting choice for the holidays!

Where to go: Sweetwater.com has lots of choices when it comes to drum sets, plus some good holiday deals and discounts as well.

What to get: Alesia is a premier brand and the instrument we use during regular weekly lessons. This Surge Electric Drum Set has all the essentials!

GIVE THE GIFT OF MUSIC

Once you have decided on the instrument you are going to give—learning how to play it will start at Vivaldi Music Academy! You can add a gift certificate to your gift for a month of lessons. We offer flexible scheduling and our gift certificates don’t expire, so it’s the perfect stocking stuffer for any music enthusiast. As always, our friendly staff is just a phone call away, so if you have any questions about giving the gift of music, please don’t hesitate to reach out!

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.

Vivaldi Music Academy Named as an Inc. 5000 & Houston Business Journal Fastest Growing Company Amidst New Location Opening

Houston, Texas,Sept 5th – The Vivaldi Music Academy team is thrilled to share news of the academy’s successes as it continues to grow in order to share the benefits of music with a wider community. In August, Vivaldi Music Academy was named as one of Inc. 5000’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America, and was noted as a finalist for Houston Business Journal’s 2018 Fast 100 Awards. Also, last month, Vivaldi Music Academy opened its third location.

On August 15th, Inc. 5000 released their annual report citing the top growing companies throughout the nation. Vivaldi Music Academy joined the ranks at position 1669, with 275% growth.

On September 7th, Vivaldi Music Academy will find out its standing within the Houston business community at Houston Business Journal’s 2018 Fast 100 event, where the final ranking of the 100 qualifiers will be announced. All the finalists are private companies based in Houston that have shown phenomenal growth from 2015 to 2017.

“I’m so proud of Vivaldi Music Academy, and the team we’ve built,” noted Owner and Director Zeljko Pavlovic. “Of course, it’s exhilarating to be honored for our business acumen, but our growth means so much more than numbers. For each location we open, and for each teacher we hire, we’re able to connect with a totally new group of students. That’s always our goal.”

As the Vivaldi Music Academy team learned of the company’s inclusion in both the Inc. 5000 and Houston Business Journal lists, they were also preparing for the opening of the school’s third location.

“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,” noted Pavlovic.

The Memorial facility, at 9311B Katy Freeway in the Echo Lane Shopping Center, has the capacity to enroll 1000 students. Fifteen new teachers began on August 1st, and the successful opening was celebrated with a ribbon cutting event on August 25th. Faculty, staff, students, and friends gathered to enjoy lunch, cupcakes, face painting, and a photo booth.

Pavlovic, who has been featured as one of Houston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40, shared the secret to the company’s growth, “It’s all about passion, and while it may start from the top, it’s a quality we look for in every one of our teachers and staff. These are people who are driven to share a love for the art of music, and our students feel it, and develop their own passion.”

That passion has led to numerous student performances far beyond the Houston metropolitan area. Vivaldi Music Academy students have performed in New York City’s renowned Carnegie Hall twice, the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts in Washington D.C., and Santa Maria della Pieta in Venice, Italy. Vivaldi Music Academy students spent three years performing with The Piano Guys at the Revention Music Center in downtown Houston. This fall, the school plans to announce an exciting new venue for an upcoming recital in July 2019.

In addition to the many performances featuring Vivaldi Music Academy students, the school has garnered spotlight on TLC’s The Little Couple, and KHOU11’s Cadillac-sponsored Shaping Houston series.

Interested parties can find out more by contacting Zeljko Pavlovic at info@vivaldimusicacademy.com, or by visiting www.vivaldimusicacademy.com.

   Among other festivities, students once again have the opportunity to perform at the Weill Recital Hall in Carnegie Hall – this time with a coda: a second performance designed to let even more students and their families experience the thrill of performing in this hallowed venue on July 5th and July 6th.

   One-hundred-twenty-seven years ago this May, and just before his own 51st birthday, Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky conducted at the grand opening of Carnegie Hall. According to Director Zeljko Pavlovic, “It’s one thing to tell students that Tchaikovsky performed there. It’s quite another to have them stand in the same building and look out into the same venue. It could be the inspiration that leads a student to bigger things.” Dream Big and Play at Carnegie Hall! We’re excited for our students upcoming performances in New York City!
