It’s Recital Time

Houston Baptist University – Belin Chapel

We are looking forward to seeing our students showcase their musical talents at the Summer Recitals on June 9th, June 23rd, and June 30th. An email with recital FAQs and sign up link was emailed to all students – please be sure to read through the information thoroughly to ensure a smooth recital day experience. Sign ups will close on Friday, May 18th at 8pm. There are many benefits for participating in a recital including:

1)   Giving students something to work towards (motivation to practice!)

2)   Performance experience

3)   Inspiration from watching more advanced performers

4)   A feeling of pride and accomplishment

If you have any questions, please let us know and we’ll be happy to help you!

Music educators are real life superheroes. They educate, innovate, encourage and support. Every day they touch the lives of millions of children and their impact extends far beyond the boundaries of the music lesson room. Tell us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about your favorite music teacher at Vivaldi Music Academy!

We know many of you have summer plans and we hope you have tons of cool adventures!

Since Vivaldi Music Academy is open year-round, it’s a good idea to start thinking about summer now! The big questions for all parents and students to consider are:

Do you want the same teacher, in the same time slot, in the fall?

Do you want to keep your Musical Ladder System level for the fall?

If the answers are YES, there are TWO WAYS to keep your teacher and spot!

Please talk to the front desk on how you can save your spot! We’re here to help you!

Mark your calendars! The summer recitals will be held on Saturdays, June 9th, 23rd and 30th!

Please begin speaking with your teachers on participation for the recitals. Often those of us who are not musically inclined or never had music lessons as children may overlook the many benefits of performing when we are so focused on the lesson-by-lesson, week-to-week gamut of our children’s music education. So let’s also take a look at the big picture – how does preparing my child for performing benefit him or her?

Lessons-Houston

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.

#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.
