New members or re-joining members

New members

New memberships are open to families who have not been a member of Suzuki music at any time previously and who are learning from a current financial teacher member of the Suzuki Assocation who has commenced or completed training on that instrument.

Teachers who wish to take out a new teacher membership must contact Suzuki Music to apply, as Suzuki teacher training credentials will be required.

Families who join for the first time part way through the year are eligible for part year memberships but memberships MUST be paid for prior to entering in any event. Event late fees will apply for families who join after the event closing date regardless of when their event application was received. Families who take out a part year membership are NOT eligible to present a graduation at any time in that year.

Families are eligible for a Country Family membership if their residential address has a postcode that does not fall between 3000 and 3207.

Families who have a child or children who are participating in Baby Voice or Baby & Toddler classes only and are three years of age or under are eligible for a Baby & Toddler membership. Once the oldest child has turned 4 or any child in the family commences lessons on an instrument the family must upgrage to a family or country family membership.

Re-joining members

Families who have been members of Suzuki Music in the past but have let their membership lapse (ie, whave been members previously but have not renewed for 2021 prior to 1 March 2021) need to rejoin as members, incurring the re-joning fee. Pro rata or part year rates are NOT available to re-joining members for any reason. Where possible, past families and teachers will be issued with the same membership number as they previously held.
