Membership

Overview

The NZSI and your local branch provides programs and services to members throughout New Zealand, funded through your membership.

These opportunities and other NZSI events enable families to become part of a greater musical community. They enrich the lives of all concerned in an atmosphere of mutual support and encouragement.

We welcome your NZSI membership to access and enjoy these benefits. Your family will develop life long friendships with others who share your interest in the values of Dr Suzuki’s philosophy.

These services include:

  • Regular workshops during school holidays, with Suzuki tutors from throughout NZ and overseas.
  • Music camps that the entire family may attend.
  • Access to national and international Suzuki conferences.
  • Opportunities for students at all levels of the Suzuki repertoire to perform at concerts.
  • A national Journal providing articles on the Suzuki approach and related topics, and information about Suzuki events.
  • The opportunity to attend parent information and education meetings.
  • Access to Suzuki library resources.
  • In some cases branches facilitate orchestra training and ensemble experience for student members.
  • A graduation process for students who wish to submit their playing to review.
  • On-going professional development is provided by the NZSI to teacher members in the interests of maintaining and increasing professional standards.
