Our LittleTone music programs are designed to expose young children to music and let them explore its various concepts in a fun and creative way. We strive to cherish the unity of mind, soul, and body. Thus we use an all-inclusive approach to teaching music taking all three aspects into account. Our goal is to build a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music no matter which instrument is chosen later for deeper study.

The curriculum varies depending on age and program from fun & recreational to a more serious, educational process. See the details below.

      It's so nice to meet you!
      Hi! I am the founder of LittleTone Music. I specialize in teaching little children and helping them start or deepen their musical knowledge in a fun yet effective way. I have over 9 years of experience teaching music to kids of preschool age and up. I've been a group & private class instructor at Opus 1 Music Studio in Silicon Valley, California since 2012. After having moved to Portland, I've decided to take on my individual adventure and share the joy of music with young minds.

      Children have an open and absorbing mind and introducing them to music as early as possible should be a goal of every parent and adult. My personal intention is to plant a seed in their hearts and reveal this wonderful world of sounds, vibes, emotions, and moods which will not only give a strong music foundation if they choose music as their primary occupation but also help them grow and bloom into confident and happy adults.

      M.A. in Education from North-Kazakhstan state university.

      Stay in Tune with Nature
      The songs are carefully chosen each time to match the current season. That lets children stay connected to nature and learn about its patterns in an engaging and fun way.
      Every student is given a Music Bag at their first class that includes all necessary materials to learn and practice at home. Whenever possible, we use instruments and other supplies made of natural materials.
