About STEP

The Suzuki Talent Education Program offers a complete string music education for children in violin, viola, and cello. Based in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador, STEP has been the foundation of string playing in our community for close four  decades & is the province's only Suzuki music education program. Private and group lessons are available for children 3 and up, and Suzuki Early Childhood Education classes are available for babies and toddlers. String playing starts with STEP!

Mission & Vision

Our mission is to teach children music through Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophies and principles of natural learning and inspire a deep appreciation for art, humanity, and traditional culture in Newfoundland and Labrador. We believe that all children's hearts and musical abilities can be nurtured through Suzuki music education, and strive to make our program accessible and inclusive to all families.

“I want to make good citizens. If a child hears fine music from the day of his birth and learns to play it himself, he develops sensitivity, discipline and endurance. He gets a beautiful heart.” — Shinichi Suzuki
