I also would make sure the basics are covered before introducing the tools. Moving away from pressure, giving in to pressure, all that stuff. Then go ahead with the suricingle. The suricingle may be a tough one as it will wrap around the girth area so go slow.
Make sure that the horse knows how to yield to pressure on the face. Not sure that is how how I wanted to say it but hopefully you understand. And yes one thing at a time. Good luck
