2018 SPRING SEMESTER REGISTRATION

Twinkle Tots

(For beginning students ages 3-5)

Families in the Twinkle Tots group will start out doing weekly group classes only! (Mondays at 4pm!) Through games, singing, and movement, we will learn how to properly hold and care for a "practice violin" (the real thing will come later), and learn some of the basic music theory terms needed to understand the language of the violin. At the end of each semester, the Twinkle Tots group will also get to do a small performance in my studio recital. This is a great starting point for families who are brand new to the Suzuki Method, or for families who have graduated from the Suzuki Early Childhood Education Class. Once students graduate from the Twinkle Tots group, they are ready to play on a real violin, and are ready to begin regular private lessons and group classes in the Twinkle Stars group. 

Please read my most current studio policies before registering.

Twinkle Stars

(For beginning students ages 5 & up)

Families in the Twinkle Stars group will do weekly private lessons and group classes twice per month. (Mondays at 4:15pm!) While group classes and lessons will include lots of games and puzzles, the main repertoire for Twinkle Stars group will be Kathleen Spring's "Bunny Ballads" and Shinichi Suzuki's Twinkle Variations. The goal is to graduate from the Twinkle Stars group completing and polishing the 100+ skills it takes to learn a proper Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star. Parent-involved practice, private lessons, and group classes will ensure the student is absorbing all the skills needed to make future musical endeavors fun and effortless. At the end of each semester, the Twinkle Stars group will have a "Twinkle Graduation" in my studio recital. This is a great starting point for families of students ages 5 and up  who are brand new to the Suzuki Method, or for families who have graduated from the Twinkle Tots group. Once students graduate from the Twinkle Stars group, they are ready to start learning fiddle tunes, and continue in the Suzuki Violin books as part of the Twinkle Graduates group.

Twinkle Graduates

(For students who have completed their "Twinkle Graduation")

Twinkle Graduates will have slightly longer private lessons (around 45 minutes), and group classes twice per month. (Mondays at 4:30pm!) Twinkle Graduates are also invited (but not required) to participate in regular fiddle jams and public performances. These families will continue the Suzuki Method and Brian Wicklund's American Fiddle Method at their own pace while preparing to perform a handful of pieces at the end of semester recital. Group classes will include plenty of Music Mind Games, Suzuki games, and practice of all of the performance pieces selected for that semester. Students who complete a Suzuki book will also get to perform a solo as part of their "book graduation" at the  end of semester recital.
