​Giving the Gift of Music

​Brighten the lives of others with a gift of music. Accepted donations help fund various musical initiatives, whether it be teacher training or student scholarships, guest clinicians at our Fall Workshop, Pedagogy and Suzuki Principles in Actions classes, or the Statewide Graduation. To help these activities succeed, we need people like you.

Compose a Legacy


​The Suzuki Association of Minnesota benefits greatly from the unpaid support of volunteers from the community to work part-time during events throughout the year. To learn more about volunteering for SAM, please email the Association. Studies show that volunteers are happier people:
  • Being generous leads us to perceive others more compassionately; we typically find good qualities in people to whom we are kind
  • Being kind promotes a sense of connection and community with others, which is one of the strongest factors in increasing happiness
  • Being generous helps us appreciate and feel grateful for our own good fortune
  • Being generous boosts our self-image; it helps us feel useful and gives us a way to use our strengths and talents in a meaningful way
  • Being kind can start a chain reaction of positivity; being kind to others may lead them to be grateful and generous to others, who in turn are grateful and kind to others

“Art exists for the human species. I think that all of the people who love art, those who teach art, and all of you should burn with the obligation to save the world.” – Dr. Shin’ichi Suzuki
