At Tone, Your Child’s Love of Music Comes First!

Tone Academy of Music is NYC's Suzuki-based school dedicated to teaching the joy and art of music from infancy through adulthood. To be a musician is to understand not only the pleasure of playing, but the joy of fostering a beautiful heart with family and community. Click here to inquire about classes and lessons!

Tone’s private lessons and music enrichment courses help students of all ages to enjoy and succeed in their musical passions, while teaching important life lessons about dedication and the worth of hard work. Through an understanding of music we come to realize the inner structures of all disciplines.

Tone also offers poetry classes taught by published, award-winning NYC poets! Poetry and music were once intrinsically joined, and its practice not only helps children to understand and express themselves, but aids with musical understanding, all aspects of writing, reading comprehension, vocabulary, and spelling while fostering a love of the written word!

With many international teachers, Tone also offers private, music lessons in many foreign languages! PIANO: Italian or German, VIOLIN: Italian, German, Greek, Arabic, or Mandarin Chinese. (All lessons available in English.)
