ToneRow is a global online community of musicians where lessons, collaborations and the exchange of ideas take place. It is a place where musicians develop their own professional network, and students can find world-class teachers to learn from.

We at ToneRow strive to make this place a safe and constructive environment for everyone, especially children.

To that end, we have put measures in place to ensure the privacy and anonymity of children under 13 years of age.


No email address is collected from children under 13 years old. The parent must complete the registration process with his or her email address. The SOLE email account associated with the user will be the parent’s. All messages, marketing announcements and news will be directed to the parent’s email address.

The parent has the right to revoke the account at any time. If a parent revokes their child’s account, we delete all information associated with that account immediately.

During the registration process, we ask for the child’s name, parent’s email address, and password. This information allows the child to participate in certain ToneRow activities such as messaging instructors and taking lessons.

We do not take credit card or other financial information from anyone. All financial transactions are done solely via PayPal.


With or without an account at ToneRow, children under 13 years of age can peruse the site, click on instructors’ and performers’ profiles, look at photos, listen to recordings and watch posted videos.

Without the parent’s account, children cannot on their own directly contact any person on ToneRow or be contacted by ToneRow instructors, users, or staff.

The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") requires that we inform parents and legal guardians about how we collect, use and disclose personal information from children under the age of 13.
