What inspired the Nannie Jamieson Nutshell Fund?

The Nannie Jamieson Nutshell Fund was launched by Yehudi Menuhin in 1990 to honour the memory of Nannie Jamieson who was the first Organising Secretary of ESTA (UK). Click here – for information on Nannie and her vital work in support of ESTA (UK).

Nannie Jamieson was the first Organising Secretary of ESTA British Branch. She was Professor of Viola at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama as well as teaching at Chetham's School and Homerton College, Cambridge. She helped her students to obtain wide experience of teaching by encouraging them to attend courses here and abroad. She often paid the fees out of her own pocket and the Nutshell Fund, established in 1990, continues this aspect of her work.
