The Pan Pacific Suzuki Association (PPSA) is the Regional Suzuki Association that is licensed by the International Suzuki Association to coordinate and develop the Suzuki Method throughout Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific. The PPSA is governed by a Board of Directors which currently consists of a representative from each of the Regional Member Associations.
The purpose of the PPSA is to license the “Suzuki” name from the International Suzuki Association (the “ISA”) and on-license that name to Suzuki Associations in the Pan Pacific Region, as part of the pursuit of the philosophy of Dr Shinichi Suzuki of Talent Education.
The PPSA will promote, encourage, maintain and improve the use, standards, understanding and teaching of the Suzuki approach to music education, as initiated and developed by Dr Shinichi Suzuki, throughout the Pan Pacific Region by sponsoring or conducting, for teachers and students, conferences, workshops, lectures, demonstrations, classes, seminars, symposia, courses and other meetings to explain and give instruction and training in the Suzuki concept of Talent Education.
The PPSA will communicate with the ISA on behalf of the Regional Suzuki Associations and to facilitate the flow of information between the ISA and the Suzuki Associations. For ISA Policy for use and licencing of Suzuki Trademarks and Copyrights, click HERE.
