Quote from our director:
I've never been a teacher that measures success by the number 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 are helping beautiful hearts to grow!  And grow we have!  I'm overjoyed that in 2 years, our school has blossomed into a community of over 130 students and their families.  That is a true measure of success!

I started my own Suzuki lessons when I was 2 years old and after 12 years of teaching, I'm still learning from my amazing students as well as the incredible and talented team of instructors that I work with every day.

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 vs. the quality of time they spend with their child. Growing up in a single-parent household, I cherished the special time I spent practicing with my mother - and still do! My hope is  to plant an appreciation of music that lasts so that my student may grow up and someday enjoy a concert with his or her child.
