The Twinkle Stars in a group incorporating singing songs, movement to music, rhythmic percussion, and playing a string instrument such as the Violin, Viola or Cello. This means that you do need to be willing for your child to hire/buy an instrument and bring it along each week. No experience is required and we start with the absolute basics. Mums and Dads are encouraged to join in!! The Twinkle Stars is aimed at 2-8yr olds. 

Class facilitator, Rachel John says, " I am inspired by the fact that music is a special gift and that research proves that learning music assists children academically particularly due to the regular stimulation of bot sides of the brain. The earlier we do this, the more equipped our children will be.” 

"There is a movie called “Music of the Heart” with Meryl Streep in it, about a true story of an inspiration teacher giving group music lessons. In addition, the Suzuki Method of violin/viola/cello again caters to group learning. Finally, I have two little children and I want them to be involved.” 

The CSO Association is a vibrant community of musicians that is right on our doorstep and as with all the CSO ensembles, membership entitles attendance at all groups. Child membership is $70 per year and if a sibling or parent would like to join in, the cost is an extra $30 to make it a family membership of $100.

Rehearsals are Mondays 3:15-4pm at the Armadale Salvation Army Church.
