Tone Academy of Music’s primary goal of the Suzuki Preparatory Class is not only to teach young people to play musical instruments. We also recognized the unique contribution music can make in the total learning process. Our goal is to include the development of the whole child, unfolding the natural potential to learn with the support of their classroom instructor and parents and caregivers, creating a deep love of music beyond the classroom!
The Suzuki Preparatory course is also the premier introduction to musical concepts for children preparing for private music instruction. Utilizing a balanced instructor-child-classroom teacher interaction, these engaging classes will introduce rhythm, tone, pulse, and pitch throughout interactive movement, rhyme, and instruments. They also cultivate concentration, motor skills, socialization, and an early comprehension and love of music!
In the Suzuki Method, children thrive in an environment of total support. Suzuki students develop confidence and self-esteem, determination to try difficult things, self- discipline, and concentration. Caregivers and parents enjoy watching their babies and toddlers develop rhythmic and melodic awareness, memory and social skills. Teachers work with parents to build a repertoire of lullabies, action songs and nursery rhymes.
Families are encouraged to use the take-home audio tracks for the entire family to continue practice and skill building.
Children around 2.5 years old and older are welcome to enroll in after school private music lessons. The Suzuki Preparatory class is helpful with private instruction as it teaches and reinforces the basic music skills needed for private instruction. Tone Academy is proud to offer 30-minute group classes (small groups of 3) at Tessa. Private lessons are also available.
