Event Description

In addition to readiness for Book One and Mastery of the Twinkle Variations, the Pre-Twinkle and Twinkle stage of development is a ripe time to explore advanced techniques with short supplementary repertoire and learning games. Instilling a relaxed, enjoyable, and open-minded attitude toward this period of learning allows teachers and parents the time to really appreciate the curiosity, fearlessness, excitement, and importance of this stage of technical development.

Course full.
