Vivaldi Music Academy offers music lessons for students of all ages and levels
Early Childhood Music Classes
Experts agree that music is an excellent vehicle for early childhood development! Not only does music bring joy to your child, it helps their neural networks make connections needed for enhanced social and intellectual development. Each class is small in size and focuses on a narrow age range (1 – 2 years, 2-3 years, 3-4 years, and 4-5 years of age) with a musical atmosphere of play, song and dance. Our comprehensive music readiness classes for older children are great preparation for overall musicianship and eventual private lessons.
Vivaldi Music Academy offers exceptional music lessons to students of all ages and levels in a fun and engaging environment. We focus on core principles and incorporate the music you enjoy. Beginning students can expect to start with the fundamentals, learn proper technique, rhythm, and reading music in a variety of genres. Intermediate to advanced students continue to experience progress with increased proficiency in technique in addition to mastering significant repertoire and developing overall musicianship.
The Vivaldi Voices program offers Houston’s young vocalists, ages 6-10, an opportunity to light up the stage while learning the fundamentals of vocal technique. Our choir teachers coach young singers to utilize their voices safely, with proper breathing technique, vocal exercises, and appropriate posture, while singing popular songs from musical theater to the classics as well as today’s pop hits! The Vivaldi Voices look forward to performances in our biannual recitals as well as numerous performance opportunities throughout Houston. Enrollment is determined by audition.
Our teachers use a variety of teaching methods and styles including the Suzuki method, developed by Japanese violinist Shinichi Suzuki who believed that, “If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart.” Vivaldi Music Academy offers piano and violin lessons with Suzuki certified faculty members.
The Vivaldi Strings Performance program serves as a perfect adjunct to private lessons in string instruments, exposing string students to the chamber music (small group) setting to develop self-sufficiency as well as teamwork through peer interaction. Focusing on various aspects of musicianship, students are challenged to utilize techniques gained as a solo performer, and apply them in collective performance, requiring strong listening skills, sight reading ability, and confident musicality. Designed to reinforce students’ learning in private lessons through collective musical tutelage, each student is motivated to practice as a valuable ensemble member.
