Peter Norris, one of the best-loved teachers at the Yehudi Menuhin School, has died after a degenerative illness, his pupils report. The Canadian son of New Zealand parents, Peter was a much-cherished coach in a school where pupils have decidedly mixed experiences.

This page  has some background on his life and work. If you have personal photographs and tributes, do post them below.
