“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!”
