This year, for the first time in Ireland, a Suzuki Violin to Viola conversion teacher training course took place in Dublin under the tutelage of the wonderful Mysie Ferguson from Edinburgh, Scotland. The course was hosted during the mid term in the idyllic location of the National Botanic Gardens thanks to the brilliant Serena Jebb. Seven trained Suzuki Violin teachers from around Ireland took part with five of us now going on to take qualifying exams on Easter Saturday, wish us luck! The course was able to run due to the support and partial sponsorship of the Leinster Suzuki Group so huge thanks to all of you Leisnter students for paying your annual subscriptions! Here's to growing our Suzuki viola community in years to come, thanks for the support LSG!
