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.

    Come check out some of the finest young string players in the city, as they showcase their talent and inherent love for music this Christmas season. From toddlers to teens, you’ll hear everything from classical to folk, and perhaps even some Christmas tunes! Rumour has it that a special visitor (wearing a red suit!) may pay us a visit :).

    We’d like to offer a special welcome to all STEP Alumni students and parents, as this year marks STEP’s 35th birthday!!!

    This show is for all ages, and admission is by donation.
