Antonio Vivaldi

Updated on January 1, 2011

Musical Adventures :: Antonio Vivaldi

Have you introduced your children to classical music and composer study? If not, I hope this lens will help to inspire you to do so. Antonio Vivaldi is without a doubt one of my favorite composers, both for his music and his dedication to the girls in the orphanage where we taught.

In our home, we began our study of Vivaldi with a brief introduction to his music with Themes to Remember. A humorous application of lyrics to help young children remember not only the name of the composer, but the title of the piece as well. We then dived into a study of Vivaldi by reading biographies, locating his country on a map, creating a notebooking page, and of course listening to his music whenever possible.

Let the music of Vivaldi fill your home as you introduce your family to this master.

Themes to Remember

Music is magical, and classical music is especially so. Children, especially, become very excited when they hear classical music on the TV, radio, computer--all around them--and can tell you what is being played and who composed it! They love the humorous illustrations and lyrics in "Themes To Remember." Learning is joyful and exciting. This learning system is unique, tested, and amazingly effective. Learn by singing along with Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, and the rest of the best!

The award-winning Classical Kids series introduces children -- and adults -- to the joys of classical music. A dramatic story, a little bit of history and the world's best-loved classical music set the scene for these fun-filled musical adventures.

      Nice lens. It would be great to be able to get more kids interested in classical music but this piece is a good help in that direction.

      We loved studying Vivaldi! This is a great lens. Please add this lens to the Charlotte Mason group. It will make a great addition to our composer study section.
