Suzuki Toddler & Pre-K Program

Unlike other childhood music classes, students will have real takeaways to build on each week. Children will build the foundations of pitch, tone, rhythm, pulse and joy. in music from around the globe.

Tone Academy of Music’s Suzuki toddler and Pre-K Class teaches our youngest students to play musical instruments but we also recognize the unique contribution music can make in the total learning process.


Our goal is to nurture the development of the whole child, unfolding the natural potential to learn with the support of their parent and caregiver, and create a deep love of music for a lifetime. Music can be an incredible tool to impart confidence, joy and a love of learning before they reach kindergarten. 

In Tone's Suzuki Toddler and Pre-K Program, we focus on developing the skills our students will eventually need to be successful in a private lesson. We use music, games, stories and structured activities as tools to develop fine motor skills, form a foundation of musical understanding, foster social skills and most importantly, provide a supportive environment in which every student will have the opportunity to learn and explore. Introducing our young learners to the diverse world of sound and music is of the utmost importance.

Absolutely Many families are eager for their little ones to start practicing piano or violin while building their focus and attention with the aid of our Suzuki group class. We strongly suggest adding a 15 minute "mini-lesson" for our beginners and work up to a full 30 minute lesson with their instructor

Can my child add a private lesson to the Suzuki Toddle/Pre-K group class?

What curriculum will be covered in the class?

Our Suzuki Toddler/Pre-K classes are based on the Suzuki Early Childhood Education Program and also incorporates learning methodologies from Kodai, Orff, Dalcroze and Montessori. In other words… we won’t pass out shakers and sing AT your children! Each student will be challenged to grow their musical foundations each week at their pace. We also strongly believe in the importance of reflecting the cultures of our community and actively include curriculum that does not rely on a Euro-centric default for participating in the music we use in class. Each class will focus on an aspect of music in relation to one of the many cultures in our community.
