Students in children's music class


Music Programs

The Baccarelli Institute has a team of more than 70 highly qualified music professionals, with artistic direction by conductor Isaac Karabtchevsky.

All students participate in weekly classes in music education, singing/ choirs and instruments and still have the opportunity to take master classes with renowned musicians from around the world.

They also have the chance to play in the main concert halls in the city, as well as in different cultural spaces and large events. The concerts, in addition to their artistic relevance, also have an important pedagogical side, as they enable musical practice with the public and assess the performance of each student. Not to mention that they contribute to the democratization of culture, offering quality music programming.  

Music Introduction Classes

18 classes attended per year

Children from 4 to 6 years old

In order to develop musicality, sensitivity, auditory perception, psychomotricity, rhythmic sense, spatial and temporal perception plus sociability, in addition to stimulating children's creativity and reasoning, the course also uses the Dalcroze rhythmic technique - a method that associates musical melody with body language.

Music Introduction Classes are the gateway for children who arrive at the Baccarelli Institute interested in learning music. The program created in 2011, is aimed at children aged 4 and 6, who are part of the public school system in the Heliópolis community. The proposal is to build knowledge through experience and practical exploration, before the theoretical introduction of musical concepts. Teachers prepare recreational activities using teaching instruments, puppets, fabrics, educational toys, music, and present the children with a magical, musical, unprecedented world - full of possibilities.

Other than that, there is a special class for vocal technique fellows, for more advanced students and those who intend to pursue a career.

An indispensable program in the curriculum of students at  the Baccarelli Institute, choral singing classes offer vocal technique, posture, breathing, scenic expression, perception and musical theory - essential for musical training. Divided between pre-choir, children's choir, youth choir, intermediate choir and advanced choir, the groups practice activities that also focus on the developing values for life in society, all that in a pleasant way of learning. 

Instrument Teaching Classes

The Baccarelli Institute allows children and young people from Heliópolis to study the classic instrument of their choice. In parallel to the choral singing classes, students have collective instrument classes and, subsequently, individual improvement classes. In parallel and according to their pedagogical development, students become part of one of the four orchestras formed by the institution.
