Ottery Strings Project
The Ottery Road Methodist Primary School is in a nearby suburb and in the past a number of learners from Ottery have come to Beau Soleil to join the Ifidyoli Ensemble on Saturdays. In 2012 a satellite project was started at the Ottery School on two mornings per week. Suzuki Method Violin teacher Titia Blake started classes of enthusiastic young violinists and Maya Maile started a cello class.
The learners have progressed well and they are regular performers in our concerts. The current teachers there are Christina Kannemeyer (violin) and Kwazi Mkula (cello).
