Imagine signing up your child up for music lessons hoping they will develop a lifelong love for music, only to be disappointed after years of lessons of very slow progress, still having trouble reading music, not knowing how to improvise, play by ear, or play music by memory.
The typical student learns only a handful of pieces for the dreaded yearly recital, then quickly forgets those pieces, and will rinse and repeat the cycle each year, until the child feels inadequate after many years, and eventually quits, never touching their instrument again.
This is why many parents are hesitant in signing up their child for music lessons. But it does not have to be this way.
Now imagine a different story.
Five years from now your child confidently walks on stage and performs 30 minutes of memorized music that sounds heavenly. Your child plays with such ease and so much joy. They decide to throw in some improvisation for additional entertainment and conclude the recital with their own composition. The best part is they are excited to be part of a good cause since this is a benefit concert.
Imagine if they can do this even after just one year.
Hi, my name is Angelina, founder of Vivaldi Academy of Music. For quite some time in my early years of music lessons I experienced those typical music lessons. Fortunately, I then began studying with world-renown concert musicians and pedagogues where I learned the most efficient ways of learning the piano and violin, as well as countless hours of pedagogy training by the leading pedagogues of our time. I am also the founder of the youth symphony at my church, have been playing professionally in various venues both locally and internationally, accompanied many choirs, lead chamber orchestras, have written compositions and arrangements for church musicians, and have taught and directed hundreds of students. I delight in sharing my passion for music with my students and watching them blossom as musicians.
The Vivaldi Academy of Music derived its name from the well-known composer Antonio Vivaldi, who taught composition and improvisation to orphans. Vivaldi Academy of Music uses a unique approach to music education, which uses the classical traditions of European music schools incorporating the classical art of music improvisation and composition as well as emphasizing tone production, healthy playing techniques, and classes dedicated to ear training which brings phenomenal results. Students also have multiple performance opportunities throughout the year as well as opportunities to participate in festivals, benefit concerts, masterclasses, the Royal Conservatory Exam program, and the Universal Music Exam program.
