The Twinkle Program focuses on combining all skills learned in the pre-twinkle stage to advanced to fluidity in playing. Twinkle classes prepare students for joining the studio’s full program of individual lessons and regular mixed ability group classes.
Completion of the Pre-Twinkle Program or transfer from another Suzuki Studio with a minimum of 6-12 months of in-person instruction. Transfer students will need to arrange a placement interview. Email me to schedule.
Students are aged 5-7 at the time of entering the program.
Parents should be familiar with The Suzuki Method and Philosophy of Education.
In addition to group class, Twinkle students also take a weekly individual lesson. Tuition covers both group and individual classes. Tuition does not include materials.
11 individual lessons and 6 group classes per quarter.
Group class focuses on skills needed to play in a group setting. Twinkle group classes are strictly group instruction. Group class meets the first and third Wednesday of each month.
An informal group recital will be held at the last group class of each quarter.
Individual lessons are 15 minutes long and held weekly. You will choose your lesson time at registration. Lessons are scheduled on a first come, first served basis. Returning students may opt to keep their current time slots, from quarter to quarter, and will only need to re-register if changing the individual lesson time.
Parents are responsible for acquiring materials.
