All adults must be vaccinated
Educators and parents can agree that environment matters to children and can make all the difference when they are learning something new. Tone students are welcomed into a safe and vibrant community where music can be heard as soon as you step off the elevator. We are so proud to be part of the SoHo and Chinatown community and hope you come visit us on Baxter Street to see our beautiful studio for yourself..
At last we can celebrate the long awaited vaccine for most of our children. Tone Academy is hopeful that we can welcome our vaccinated students for lessons at our studio without masks. The CDC and NYS will be giving their guidelines in the next month, and we are committed to keeping our community informed and safe as we learn more.
Please note an important change to our semester schedule for the 2022-23 school year: All in-person lessons (at our studio and in-home) will be taught virtually between Thanksgiving Break and Winter Break. See our full calendar of classes here.
Group Classes at Tone
We believe that having the opportunity to share music is just as important as learning to practice on your own.
Music Reading - Beginning and Intermediate Level A common misconception about the Suzuki Method is that students never learn to read music. Learning music notation is an essential skill for all Tone Academy students, but the frustration (and boredom!) associated with learning to read doesn't happen in our group classes.
Open to vocalists and instrumentalists, students will be work with peers to learn a variety of song styles so they can let their imaginations run wild with their own compositions. We promise... no songs will include a baby shark.
Recording, Mixing, and Production
Students at any level and any age will have an opportunity to learn the basics of creating a track using professional equipment. Students will be grouped by their age, but this class is perfect for the middle or high school student interested in exploring music outside of the practice room, and they'll have their own EP by the end of the semester.
Violin Ensemble and Repertoire
This fall we're thrilled to invite Tone Academy violinists to bi-monthly group classes with students from other music schools around NYC. More details to come in September... but rumor is violinists will get to play in some great venues throughout the semester!
COVID-19 Health and Safety Protocols will be updated as soon as the new guidelines are made public from New York State and the CDC. Tone Academy has been committed to keeping our community safe since the beginning of the pandemic and will continue to update our protocols as new information is available.
Below are the current protocols as of August 2022.
