Ever since 1953, when the company was founded in Hamamatsu, Japan, Suzuki has had one simple goal in mind: "Providing the world with the affordable means to positively communicate through the universal language of music." That idea is definitely a running theme through their lineup of instruments, which is focused primarily on keyboards, harmonicas and melodic percussion designed to be student-friendly and high-performing.
For a new keyboardist or an experienced pianist looking for a portable yet powerful instrument, the Suzuki SP-45 61-note Portable Keyboard is a good choice. Its key count is short enough to make the instrument compact and travel-ready, but broad enough not to leave you feeling restricted when you play. For a permanent in-home or classroom setup, take a look at Suzuki's Mini Grand and Micro Grand digital pianos. These have full keyboards and tons of excellent features, not to mention being attractive centerpieces for your music room.
If you'd like to try a more compact instrument, check out Suzuki's impressive range of harmonicas. These start out with the fun-to-play Folkmaster, perfect for casual experimentation, and run all the way to the absolutely gorgeous, professional-level, SC-128 Tremolo Chromatic Harmonica. Suzuki also makes a great range of metallophones, glockenspiels and xylophones for adding the unique character of melodic percussion into your musical stylings.
One of the most valuable resources available to a learning musician is literature. Guidebooks and songbooks are indispensable when you're studying an instrument, and Suzuki prints quite a few. Some, like their many piano books, cover instruments that Suzuki also builds, but they don't limit themselves there. They also branch out from their manufacturing arm with books for instruments like the violin, viola and guitar.
Whether you're sitting down at the keyboard of a Suzuki Mini Grand digital piano, jamming on a chord harmonica or brushing up on guitar basics with the practice songs in the Guitar School book, Suzuki has a lot to offer for your musical journey. Catering to professional musicians as well as beginners makes Suzuki a diverse player in the music scene.
