STEP Registration (2018-2019)

Welcome to STEP Registration 2018-2019! This year you can register your children via a single online process. One registration is used to register all members of your family. The online registration process is similar to a “Shopping Cart”, much like what you would find on your favourite e-Commerce website (e.g. Amazon, Best Buy, etc.).

Note that while registration is online, payment is generally by cash or cheque (cheques are strongly preferred), which you can drop off at our Opening Concert, pop in the mail to PO Box 23182, Churchill Square PO, St. John’s, NL, A1B 4J9, or bring to your first group class. Make out cheques to “STEP”.

While we don’t have online payments integrated yet, we do accept Interac e-transfers and PayPal – you can send your payment to step@suzukinl.ca, Please add an additional 3% to your PayPal payment when using this method, to cover PayPal fees. Use the password “suzuki” for e-transfers.  E-transfers are without fee besides what your bank may charge.

The form will do all the math for you – all you need to do is record the amount, and decide how to pay us – but you do not pay as you register online. Once you’ve filled out the form, you can “check out” and pay by your chosen method later.

Please visit each section below in turn, and select courses there to add to your registration.

Step 1: Family Registration

One of these yearly fees applies to all families. Please add the appropriate one to your cart.



Step 2 : Core classes for Beginners, Babies/Toddlers, and Pre-twinklers

Every STEP student studying violin or cello must enrol in a core program. Exceptions by permission of the Artistic Director.

See the Group Class Schedule for time/room/teacher details.

Are you new to STEP this year?

  • If you have a little one (3 or under) whom you’re enrolling in our “Music With Your Baby” or “Transitions” class, pick one of those!
  • If your child is 3+ and headed into our violin or cello program for the first time, select our “Parent Orientation” class, and put yourself in as the student; and “Pre-Twinkle January-June”, as it’s likely that’s when your child will be ready to participate. If you have other instructions from the Artistic Director as to which class to register for, please follow those.

Returning students: you should have received a group class list by email. If you haven’t, please contact step@suzukinl.ca and let us know.
