The violin section is part of a long tradition that began with the famous Hungarian pedagogue Oskar Back, who studied with Eugène Ysaÿe. Carl Flesch has also been a teacher at the  Amsterdam institute. Herman Krebbers and Davina van Wely followed in Oskar Back's footsteps and have trained renowned students for years.
