Event Description

Using vocabulary that will appeal to the young beginner, this course presents activities to be used in both the individual lesson and in small groups to keep the early stages of Suzuki piano fun, engaging and age appropriate while also adhering to the fundamental principles of Suzuki learning. Following the concept of small steps, repetition and learning by doing, let’s look at how we teach the Twinkle Variations and how we engage and work with parents towards daily practice.
