Student Program: Pre-Twinkle

The Atlanta Suzuki Institute's Pre-Twinkle program is for students who are just beginning their Suzuki violin, viola, cello, or guitar studies.

ASI plans to return to in-person instruction this summer!

Classes will be held at the Hugh Hodgson School of Music on the campus of the University of Georgia in Athens from Thursday, June 23 through Sunday, June 26, 2022.

June registration will be considered on a space-available basis. Email the Atlanta Suzuki Institute for more information.


Pre-Twinkle students will participate in the following 3 core classes: 

Lesson Class

Group Class

Music & Movement Class


Pre-Twinkle students are eligible to add the following elective class in addition to the core classes above:

Drumming (open to all levels & instruments)


We are pleased to offer an Art Class Series (open to ages 4+) and a Family Chorus (open to all) for Suzuki students and their families this year. Since the days will be quite long, it may be best for Pre-Twinkle students to only register for one extra elective or activity. In addition, all students and families are welcome and encouraged to attend all guest artist and student recitals as well as any Institute-wide social activities.

We realize that Suzuki journeys begin at a variety of ages. We welcome beginning Suzuki students of all ages,

and will do our best to group students by age as well as book level when scheduling Pre-Twinkle students.

As this is a residential institute, we expect classes and other activities to be spread over several hours each day, including evenings. Individual/daily schedules will not be available until June.

Registration Fee (non-refundable): $100 per family

Pre-Twinkle Program Fee: $400 per participant

Drumming Elective Fee: $75 per participant

Art Class Series Fee: $40 per participant (ages 4+)

Family Chorus Fee: $10 per participant (open to all)


A limited number of need-based scholarships and scholarships for students of color are available.

Please visit the Student Scholarships page for more information and application instructions.

ASI is continuing to monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has developed a tiered system of COVID-19 mitigation measures/policies that are determined by community case counts and participant vaccination rates. These policies are now available on our 2022 COVID-19 Policies page and all participants will be notified of the required tier of mitigation policies prior to arrival at ASI.
