mission & vision

Our goal is to inspire musical growth in young musicians through community, exploration and performance.

Vivace Music Institute

The Vivace Experience!

The Vivace Music Institute Summer Campis a week long day camp for young musicians ages 6 to 18 who play stringed instruments, piano and harp and who are currently studying with a private instructor.  The camp is held at the Point Loma Seventh-Day Adventist Church campus and offers students the opportunity to grow musically both inwardly and outwardly.  The courses range from master classes and ensemble coaching to both physical and emotional exercises tailored to young musicians.

2016 Summer Camp


Once a student is enrolled, a packet including a camp schedule, code of conduct, and the music for ensemble performance will be mailed.  

Students are expected to learn the music for their solo and ensemble performance, with their private teacher, before attending camp.

Afternoon Drumming
The drum circle teaches young musicians to carry steady rhythm while working in a team to share new rhythmic ideas!

Why Chamber Music?

We believe that involving young musicians in chamber music provides another venue for them to grow in their creativity and is fundamental to their musical development.

Professional Coaching
All coaches and instructors are experienced performers and teachers. Students receive coaching from multiple instructors for a well-rounded experience.

Movement and Music
This special course is taught by a world-renowned yoga and physical therapist.  She instructs the young musicians in proper posture and pre/post practice exercises and stretches for ideal physical strength.

Friendship
Developing relationships with other young musicians is vital to every child's musical success and enjoyment!

Musical Enrichment

Students will not only hone their chamber music skills, but will also receive coaching in solo performance, music theory, music history!
