We invite you to join us by becoming a member. We want to extend our Suzuki family by getting to know you and having your input. Your membership ensures we can continue to provide a variety of events and create thoughtful ways of raising public awareness of music education while finding ways to help all those interested, regardless of financial situations.
Teacher members receive notifications about events for themselves and their students. These events include area wide play-ins, graduations, teacher workshops, student institutes and the Suzuki Family Camp. Teachers may receive discounts for some of these evens and may apply for financial aid to further their training. All members can be listed in our Member Directory, with control over information shared with potential students and other members.
The Suzuki Association of Northern California (SANC) is a Branch of the Suzuki Music Association of California (SMAC), a State-wide non-profit organization of Suzuki Method music teachers. All students of active Teacher Members are automatically members of our local Branch.
Membership Dues Update: August 2017
The Suzuki Music Association of California has established a new dues procedure. The portion of your dues that were forwarded to SMAC in the past will now be collected on-line only and paid directly to SMAC. Local dues have been discontinued. By paying your dues directly to SMAC, you are a SMAC member and therefore a member of our local branch. If anyone would like to donation to our local branch, you are welcome to do so. You can renew your membership by going to smac-ca.org directly, or via the link on this site. These changes have been made to be in compliance with current audit requirements.
