Welcome to Suzuki Talent Education Association
(Western Australia) Inc.
We are an association of music teachers and parents who follow the “Mother Tongue” method of music teaching developed by Dr Shinichi Suzuki.
The Suzuki method of learning provides the opportunity for children from a very young age to get together and play together as the repertoire is common to them all. Our students in Perth, Western Australia benefit greatly from these experiences.
Suzuki Talent Education Association of Australia (WA) Inc (STEAA(WA)) offers tuition in the following instruments as well as Early Childhood programs:
“Where love is deep, much can be accomplished.”
~ Dr Shinichi Suzuki
Our teachers are highly trained, and are located throughout Western Australia.
From our former Patron:
Some six decades ago, Shinichi Suzuki, a Japanese violinist and teacher, developed a joyous way for children learning to play the violin.
Known as the Suzuki Method and also the Mother Tongue Method of Education, it continues to make a wonderful contribution to music education worldwide and to the quality of life of countless thousands of past and present Suzuki students, their teachers and parents.
Over the years the Suzuki Method has been developed to apply to several other string and wind instruments and piano. It also includes singing.
The Suzuki Talent Education Association of Western Australia is noted for the way its carefully trained teachers, together with the cooperation of parents, foster the educational value of the Suzuki Method by developing abilities and attitudes in children which then flow on to other areas of “growing up”.
The involvement of parents is one of the method’s great human strengths; as is the social aspect which plays an important role in the Suzuki Method, whereby teachers, children, parents and relatives come together often for many different kinds of musical activities.
