When will my child use the book?
If your child is still in Book 1, some teachers at their discretion may start introduction of pattern recognition and pitch differentiation on the staff to students who are 6 or older once they have learned the Twinkle Variations through Allegro. By this time, they should be pretty comfortable on the instrument. However, and most of the time if they are younger, or if the ear needs more development, they will start learning how to read once they have completed Book 1 and have auditioned for Book 2. Book 1 would then be a tool for the parent to guide at home practice.
