Event Description

Prerequisite: Registered Book 1 Training or higher

How often have you wished for a crystal ball to look into the future and see your students? How do you begin with the end in mind at Twinkle to set your students up for technical success in the later Books? How do you know where to stand firm in your expectations and where to give a little? Which technical issues can be successfully addressed later? Which ones have to be set now?

Participants in this five-hour workshop will trace technical issues of their choice (chosen by consensus, i.e. Scales, Alberti Bass, Arpeggiation, Left-Hand stability, Thumb closing/tone) through the repertoire. The goal is to understand how mastery of the technical tools learned in Twinkle A through Cricket’s Song set students up for success in later pieces and for each Participant to leave the workshop with a detailed chart of review spots in the early repertoire that apply to Books 2—5.

Course full.
