A New Year's Message from the International Suzuki Association

Posted by Allen Lieb CEO ISA on 7 January 2021

This past year, 2020, proved the resilience, creativity and adaptability of Talent Education and Suzuki Method teachers and families around the world. Students continue to practice, lessons are taught, performances are posted online, teachers become Zoom masters, and Suzuki communities reach out across the globe to share their ideas, challenges and triumphs in this age of social upheaval and potential isolation. Music speaks directly to the heart of humanity. “Tone has a living soul,” Dr. Suzuki has said. That life force sustains our movement even in this virtual age of the internet. How we long to share once again our skills and gifts in person. For now, we continue our work “for the happiness of all children.”
