“Twinkle Little Star” is the original founding creative “all round” piano-arts program that uses language arts, visual arts and the performing arts in the music learning process. Since its establishment in 1980, the unique & highly successful program, that established some bright talented young stars, has been offering custom designed “individualized” course of study to students. Attention focuses on the the needs, potential, age, level, and interests of the individual child age 4 and up.
The artistic curriculum, especially suitable for early childhood development, enables & inspires a young child to learn, listen, play and have fun being introduced to the symbolic language of music.Through the course of study, a strong musical foundation is established and the child’s musical, creative and emotional skills are developed. Individual talents are observed and nurtured. Focus is given to develop individual creative music interpretation and artistic personality.
The innovative “Imagery In Music” educational concept provides a child with the creative tools to communicate character, mood and emotion when playing a piece at the piano. Students explore a variety of arts disciplines to express their musical performance and go beyond just playing notes. Each child is required to create his/her own music arts portfolio by using scrapbook, sketchbook and studio recording equipment to capture artistic expression. The performing arts studio exhibits a variety of impressive inter-connection of the arts examples created by students.
For some very gifted, artistically inclined and enthusiastic young learners, the “Twinkle Little Star” program has been the foundation and “stepping stone” for talented and serious students to further pursue a concentrated course of piano performance study at the studio.
A very impressive track record of student accolades and a thick archives binder are testament of the studio’s standard of educational arts excellence.
