Suzuki Institute of Indonesia 2015

Our VISION

The Suzuki Music Association of Indonesia (SMAI) seeks to advance the future generations of Indonesia through Suzuki education. We aim to develop citizens of character through the learning of classical music.

Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998) was a Japanese violin teacher who discovered an approach to learning music called the ‘Mother Tongue’ Method. Suzuki demonstrated that children as young as 3 years old can learn to play the violin in the same manner as learning language: with the care and love of the family, an environment of listening, encouragement and support, and step by step practice, performance and review of a repertoire of fine classical music.

In July 2009 the Asia Suzuki Association (ASA) appointed the Suzuki Music Association of Indonesia (SMAI) to oversee the development of Shinichi Suzuki’s teachings and philosophy in Indonesia. SMAI has now become a member of the International Suzuki Association (ISA) and members can participate and network with other Suzuki families and teachers around the world.

Our MISSION

As a non-profit organization our programs and activities:

  • Create healthy learning communities of parents, teachers and children
  • Support the learning of music in early childhood education
  • Develop teacher’s abilities and quality of life
  • Reach out to all levels of society

Student, parent and teacher members interconnect through events, newsletters and gatherings.
