BIOGRAPHY

I hold a Master of Education in Music from the Academy of Music and Drama at the university of Gothenburg, where I studied with Lisbeth Vecchi and Oyvor Volle. I am also a Suzuki teacher, and my Suzuki teacher trainers are Shannon Hawes and Jan Matthiesen (Denmark) Sven Sjögren (Sweden).
I teach violin at Vaxjo Kulturskola in Sweden, where I have both beginners and advanced students. I work a lot with both individual and group lessons. I´m also the leader of our student chamber orchestra. I have also worked with music lessons at schools called companion teaching, where music teachers work together with the class teacher.
To work with my own students, and to see them grow both as individuals and as a team is wonderful but I also love the challenge of meeting new students at workshops and at summer courses. This is something I have done a lot through the years, from small local workshops to SSZ´s national summer course.

Teach Without Words.

“Less talk is one of my favorite teaching tools, still I often must remind myself to use it”.

When I leave my words at rest, it often seems that attention and communication grows. I feel that communication without words sometimes creates more space for music. What happens in a group class (or in an individual lesson) when we don’t use words and express ourselves only with eyes, hands, sound, music? How does it affect the students in how they interact with me and with each other? I would like to share with you some of my thoughts and reflections about this lovely subject and perhaps give a few examples of how I use it.
