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

The NZSI and its branches offer its members:

  • Regular workshops and music camps during school holidays the entire family may attend.
  • Access to national and international Suzuki conferences.
  • Performance opportunities for students at all levels of the Suzuki repertoire.
  • National journal providing articles on the Suzuki approach and related topics, and information about upcoming Suzuki events.
  • Opportunities to attend parent information and education meetings.
  • A student graduation process.
  • In some cases, branches facilitate orchestra training and ensemble experience for student members.
  • Ongoing professional development is provided by the NZSI to teacher members in the interests of maintaining and increasing professional standards.

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.
