Our Mission:

Create. Inspire. Act.

inspiring positive change for our diverse world

through arts education and music


Common Tone Arts was conceived on the premise that Seattle will continue to grow as a world center for art, culture, and education. We believe that Seattle will be a positive force in art in the coming decades and CTA is a visionary organization providing the vehicle and framework to bring it all together. The ability to find common ground is potentially the greatest challenge humanity will face in this century. We believe that creativity in the arts is a universal human need and that music is our true universal language.
