The Bmore Twinklers program is built around lessons, group classes, and performing opportunities for all students.
For families who are interested in enrolling:
A brief preliminary period of observation is highly recommended. In my experience, this is the best way for parents to determine if this studio and its approach are a good fit. Plan on observing at least two lessons on two separate occasions or a lesson and a group class with your child. There is no charge for observation. In addition, a visit to the Suzuki Association of the Americas online (click here) is recommended.
If observation is not feasible, the option of a 20 minute trial lesson is available. The fee is $20. Contact me through this site or via email to schedule.
A breakdown of tuition fees:
$50/hour of private tuition. Beginners in private lessons will have a 30 minute weekly lesson, which comes to $25/lesson.
$20/group lesson. Group lessons are lessons shared with 1 to 3 other students of a similar age and ability level. They last between 45 and 60 minutes. This is the ideal arrangement for preschool and kindergarten aged students.
$10-$20 per group class. The Pre Twinkle class is a shorter period, so the charge is less ($10). More advanced students have a longer class, so the charge is more ($20). If siblings join the studio, their class tuition is automatically $10, regardless of class time length.
Billing is on a quarterly basis for the academic year, changing to a per-service basis during the summer, when group classes are out of session.
Instruments and materials:
Most families rent fractional size instruments through a reputable dealer, and purchase materials through an online company familiar with the Suzuki Method, such as Shar.
