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.

  • January 21st group classes are CANCELLED - Hello STEP Community! As you know, we have a snowstorm coming in - it now looks like the worst of it (with some serious winds) will be hitting in the morning just as we would be having group classes, so in the interests of safety we will be cancelling all group classes tomorrow. The next STEP event is our solo concert next Saturday (the 28th). We'll see you then!
