Mari Tooming – handbells, solfeggio, handbell course for adults
Mari has been working at the Tartu Arsis Handbell School since its founding, first as a piano teacher and later a solfeggio and handbell teacher. Her interest in music started in kindergarten and she continued developing it in different schools.
In addition to playing the piano and singing in a choir, she is also fascinated by the king of all instruments – the organ. Children find Mari to be a gleeful, sometimes strict, but mostly a kind and fun teacher. She has taught in many different schools and choirs, that have grown her persistency in making her dreams a reality. Mari loves classical and contemporary music performed by professional musicians. Since 2007, she is the conductor of the Tartu youth concert ensembles.
