Parent Classes

If you are the parent of a student in one of our Pre-Twinkle classes, please note that there are no group classes for the children for the first 4 weeks of the Fall (students will have their private lessons during this time).  These weeks are dedicated to special parent-only classes. Pre-Twinkle parents are required to attend, however ALL parents are welcome and invited- not just parents of little ones.  These classes will equip you with  tools and tips to help cultivate a positive and productive environment and promote success in your Suzuki journey at home.  These classes will be offered during your child’s group class time, however in response to some stated needs, we also offer these classes at alternate times that are easier for parents to attend without children.
