Philosophy

Pre-twinkle classes are based on the recognition that all children are musical.  All children can learn to sing in tune, keep a beat, and participate with confidence in the music of our culture, providing that their early environment supports such learning. By emphasizing actual music experiences rather than concepts about music, Pre-Twinkle Violin introduces children to the pleasures of making music instead of passively receiving it from CDs or TV.

Central to the Pre-Twinkle Violin approach is that young children learn best from the powerful role model of parents/caregivers who are actively making music.  The program brings families together by providing a rich musical environment in the studio and by facilitating family participation in spontaneous musical activity at home within the context of daily life.
