Announcing a New Publication from ISA

The Life of Dr. Shinichi Suzuki: A Chronology

The ISA is proud to announce this important new publication chronicling the life of Dr. Suzuki decade by decade through text and pictures, from his early upbringing, his time in Germany, the return to Japan, and the flowering of the Talent Education movement worldwide.

The ISA is indebted to Mikio Shin of TERI, the original author of the Chronology, for his permission to expand and translate this significant new document. And to Lili Selden and Ruth Miura for their work on the English translation.

Currently the Chronology is only available to view online. Any inquiries about print copies should be directed to your particular Regional Association.
