Welcome to STEP

Welcome to the Suzuki Talent Education Program (STEP), in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. We are a non-profit music program dedicated to the teaching of music according to the method and philosophy of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki. STEP’s mission is to employ Suzuki’s method to enrich both the family lives of members of the organization and the cultural life of Newfoundland and Labrador as a whole through music.

What’s Happening?

  • Come play with us!

    STEP is accepting new members for the 2018-2019 year! Do you have a child 3 or older to whom you wish to give the gift of a lifetime of music? The Suzuki Talent Education Program has been cultivating beautiful hearts and musical souls in children and families in St. John’s for over 35 years. We offer violin, viola, and cello lessons (private and group) to children as young as 3 – it’s true, the younger they start, the better. They grow so quickly… let us help them blossom.

    Your child will enjoy private lessons in your choice of stringed instrument with one of our highly trained faculty; group classes on Saturday mornings with their friends at the same age and level; and concerts and other events at which to play and listen. Parents are essential team members at STEP; you and your child will learn together and build a strong bond.

    We welcome younger children too, offering “Music With Your Baby” classes for under-threes with their parents. No need to wait – fill your little one’s life with music and fun!

    Please email us at step@suzukinl.ca for more information. You can also sign up for private teaching studio space on our waitlist, or for notification when group registration opens in August. We would love to hear from you!
