The Suzuki Voice Program

since 1986



The Suzuki Voice Program is approved by the ISA. It has been specially designed to learn vocal technique and style in a progressive manner. It enables a student to start listening to songs during pregnancy and continue singing until adulthood. The Program has been developed in Vantaa, Finland since 1986 by Dr. Päivi Kukkamäki. The original voice students have followed in the Program already for 20-38 years.

There are trained teachers in over 25 countries including America, Australia, Europe, Asia and New Zealand. By singing the repertoire, the students and teachers are able to learn from one another's countries and to understand more about their different cultures and languages.
