Toones Academic Music (TAM) is an award-winning education program designed to help children between ages 5 to 9 connect ideas through music, excel in math and learn by play. Backed up by 5 years of research, our innovative curriculum is nationally recognized by the American Educational Research Association. Students discover and practice fraction concepts, critical thinking, and problem solving through music. The success of our program is reflected in studies showing significant improvement in math scores on the California Standard Test (CST). As a non-profit organization, we welcome your interest in supporting our efforts to keep arts-based learning in public schools.
