Parent-Tot Music Classes

Music classes for toddlers

We offer Parent-Tot classes for children aged 18 months - 4 years in a creative environment that encourages little ones to explore, create and love music! Studies have proven that early musical training helps to develop brain areas involved in language and spatial reasoning. Children will learn how to follow instructions, listen to music for clues on quiet/loud, slow/fast, and stop/go. They'll also have the opportunity to work with rhythm instruments, dance to music and play with a parachute.

Piano Tunes Music Academy has been serving families in Rockton, Roscoe, Rockford, South Beloit, Beloit, Machesney Park, and Loves Park for almost 20 years!

Susan Gorman is the creator and owner of PTMA, a family-owned company. In 1997, she started Piano Tunes and offered piano lessons out of her home as well as piano tuning services. It wasn't long before she began to offer voice and guitar lessons.

Between 2006 and 2012, we grew so much that we moved to larger studio spaces twice! Piano Tunes Academy became Piano Tunes Music Academy to better reflect all that we do, from Music Lessons and Music Day Camps to events like Open-Mic Nights and Overnighters.

In 2012, Ms. Suzie and her family completely gutted and renovated a building(formerly PeeWee's Pub) into the perfect space to offer lessons for a wide variety of musical instruments, a stage area, a lobby, a commercial kitchen, and a bonus loft area that currently is used for yoga classes by Positive Vibrations Yoga, Parent-Tot Classes and our Ensemble Groups.
