What better way to share the excitement of London than with a Spirit Week!

All students are highly encouraged to participate, especially our London performers with their blue Keep Calm shirts. The academy will have small treats during this week in celebration of London Spirit Week! We look forward to seeing your best or most regal costumes.

Greater Focus – Without the worry of homework, sports, or other after school activities, you can devote time and attention to music. Better focus leads to better practice!

Time for Something New – Summer is the perfect time to try out a new instrument or two!

Summer Recitals at University of St. Thomas!

The summer recitals will be held on June 15th, 16th, 22nd and 23rd at the University of St. Thomas (4001 Mt. Vernon, Houston,TX 77006). Please begin speaking with your teachers regarding participation in 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 one’s child for performing benefit him or her?

Check out this blog we posted for our friends at Houston Mom’s Blog to find the answer to this question.

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.
