Long term teacher training continues for Violin (with Koen Rens) and Piano (with Mary McCarthy) were supported by the Trust over a number of years.
The first Violin course started in 2017 with support from the Trust, directed by Agathe Jerie. Six candidates took level 1 in July 2018 and the Trust has given a grant for the continuation of the course in 2018-19 with levels 2-3, while five new trainees are expected to start at level 1. This course is also directed by Agathe Jerie. The association also has plans to start other instruments and the Trust is committed to support these.
