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

Did you know that from 1 August 2020 it will be forbidden to smoke in and around the buildings of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences? As of August 1st 2020 an amendment has been included in the Tobacco Act that smoking is no longer allowed inside and outside all educational institutions in the Netherlands. This measure applies to primary schools, secondary schools, institutes of higher professional education (MBO- and HBO) and universities.
Why a ban on smoking?
As many young people smoke their first cigarette at school, the government wants to reduce these numbers. Young people are sensitive to the exemplary behavior of people around them. A smoke-free schoolyard sets a norm that smoking is not normal.
Questions about quitting smoking? If so, please contact the Prevention Centre:
GGD Zuid Limburg will be setting up a temporary "test street" in Maastricht in the coming days, exclusively for students. The test street will be located in car park P5 at the Paul-Henri Spaaklaan behind MECC Maastricht, close to Maastricht University and will be in use on Monday afternoon (August 17th, 2020).
