What to Prepare Before the First Lesson

1)  Pick up a Suzuki Violin Beginners Packet ASAP - call or email to set up an appointment

2)  LISTEN many hours a day to your Twinkles and Suzuki Volume 1 CD. Your child should be listening when they wake up, in the car, during the day, in the living room, playroom, and at bedtime.

3)  Practice with your child in identifying, clapping, and singing all twinkle variations. Your child must be able to do this by themselves before starting lessons!

4)  Practice singing the 'A' pitch to/with your child 

5)  Start learning flashcards and working in the violin activity book

6)  Obtain a 4/4 full size violin for yourself for parent lessons

7)  Start reading parent handouts
