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.

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.
