Musicians Institute Australia, WA's Premier Nationally Registered Suzuki Music Institute for Violin

MIA Welcomes Violin Beginners Age 3 to 8 Years.

World Leading
Music Education



Extraordinary progress, dynamic environment, inspiring results.

At their first classes, new parents to the MIA programme watch how the young students make rapid progress, move gracefully and perform confidently from memory. They steal a quick glance at the other parents and notice they are not stressed or strict disciplinarians. In fact they appear relaxed and smiling. And no, they havenít bribed or pressured their children to practise. How do they do it?

At the heart of the MIA programme is the parentís connection with their childís learning process. Parents learn how to work with their children daily to achieve fluency and beauty in their music. They know how it works: children enjoy doing what they can do well.

Experiencing learning either as a joy or a trial at a very young age has enduring implications for the whole of life. Depending on the quality of these early experiences, learning becomes an achievable adventure or a chore to be avoided.

When parents know how to create interest and enjoyment in daily violin playing and practice, abilities become exceptional. This way of learning works for every child. MIA students become superior learners because their parents learn how to work happily and intelligently with them. This is the most important thing for parents to know: how to make a habit of creating interest and fostering a love of learning.

MIA teachers have many years of experience in music education and learning. The founders are graduates of the Suzuki Music School in Japan, studying several years with the founder of the method, Dr Shinichi Suzuki. Over 33 years MIA has taught hundreds of young children to become accomplished musicians.

Read what our parents and students have to say:

"Dynamic and Confident Performers"
"Both of my children started at MIA when they were three and four years old and they are now sixteen and thirteen! My daughter Sheryl has passed Suzuki Book 10 (Mozart's Violin Concerto in D Major) and has been an active member of the WA Youth Orchestra for several years. My son Dylan is currently studying Book 9. MIA encourages students to play with enthusiasm and with stage presence. Students learn to play confidently from memory. The MIA programme also sets clear goals for the students and works with the parent and student to achieve those goals. They become dynamic and confident performers."

"MIA Changed Our Lives"
"The children have been given this treasure and a means of dealing with challenges in other aspects of their lives. It has changed our lives and given us a way of providing something incredibly important - thant they will take into everything they do."
Deryn Alpers

"So Many Benefits"
"We have experienced so many benefits since starting with MIA. We especially appreciate the fact that our children are building music skills from a young age and are learning how to work consistently every day. It is important for us that our children learn how to do things successfully in life and violin teaches them the steps involved to be accomplished at a specific skill.
The MIA Violin Programme creates a very positive and nurturing learning environment in both the one on one lessons and the Saturday program. Saturday is particularly motivating for our girls. MIA - We are so lucky to have discovered you!"

"Motivated for the Entire Time"
"Quality of teaching and location were important to me when looking for a violin programme for my daughter Christina. I looked at several other programmes but chose MIA after meeting and talking with John. I am amazed that 1 and 1/2 hours on Saturday flows so smoothly for my four year old and that she is motivated for the entire time! It has also helped in terms of setting a clear routine at home which has even carried over to my older child who is not studying in the programme! The goal setting sessions have been fantastic in that we are clear about what we need to achieve during the week."

The Young Concert Performer Violin Programme is for children ages 3 to 9 years.

The MIA music learning system is the result of over 30 years work and research by the founders. It produces unprecedented results. Every student makes rapid progress and becomes a fluent and charismatic performer. No-one is left behind.

This learning culture and system quickly builds momentum, carrying students along by the enjoyment and energy of real success. Learning to play well creates a special sense of wellbeing. It creates confidence and strength in learning.

Motivation - A Viewpoint

I believe the best way to try to understand motivation in children is to look at what motivates me and what gets my energy going and then to work from my insights to see what might apply to children....
