We are deeply saddened by the news of the passing of our highly valued colleague, teacher and friend Jan Nobbe.
Jan amazed and inspired us with his positive view of life and his everlasting involvement with his (former) students and their music. For his 35 years of commitment as our ear training teacher we owe him a great debt of gratitude. He left innumerable musicians with warm memories of his lessons he started in 1985. He was much loved in our community and will be dearly missed.
We invite you to write a message on his memoriam page: https://www.memori.nl/gedenkplaats/jan-nobbe
