Celebrating the legacy of Anne and Henry Turner,
and remembering their enormous contribution to the development of the Suzuki Method in Europe.
Henry Turner was Deputy Chairman of ESA for many years and made an invaluable contribution during the early days of the association. His positive influence is still felt today. He was also a founding member of the British Suzuki Institute’s executive committee and represented ESA on the board of the International Suzuki Association.
Anne made a major contribution to the development of the Suzuki Method in Europe. She was the first Piano Teacher Trainer and was hugely influential through her work and her example. She was a tireless ambassador for the Suzuki Method everywhere she went, and gave countless truly inspiring workshops and demonstrations.
Awards will be made annually or when funds allow, and will be given principally to individual teachers, students or others to support projects to further the development of the Suzuki Method.
The awards will be funded from donations and fundraising concerts and other events in memory of Anne and Henry Turner.
The funds donated to the Award Scheme will be accounted for separately for the Trust’s general fund and managed by the Trustees.
The trustees and other supporters, including Anne and Henry’s children hope that funds collected and distributed can help to perpetuate their legacy.
