Tone's instructors are also professional musicians, many of whom perform prolifically throughout the world, at home in Broadway shows including Hamilton, on TV with Saturday Night Live, or in concert with the likes of Madonna and Stevie Wonder! This unique duality of our teachers sets them apart from other schools, allowing us to offer challenging and tailored instruction from infancy to adulthood.
And with many international teachers, Tone also offers private music lessons taught in a handful of foreign languages! PIANO: Italian or German; VIOLIN: Italian, German, Greek, Arabic, or Mandarin Chinese; CELLO: Spanish
"My excitement and joy come from seeing a parent and child share memorable experiences together through music. In these hectic times full of noise and distraction, every parent has to strike a balance between the quantity and the quality of time they spend with their child. I've never been a teacher that measures success by the number of students I have who become professional musicians; Dr. Suzuki never set out to create violinists. With his wisdom, the faculty at Tone Academy of Music is helping beautiful hearts to grow!"
