School concerts and projects, family concerts
All of my bands have experiences of performing for young audiences, in the form of concerts in schools, and public family concerts. They can also do interactive concert parts where the audicence gets involved, and different forms of arts projects where school children become involved in the creative process. Especially Tummel and Nordic Raga have worked a lot with this. I also do solo projects like this. I have a performance called “Around the World in 45 minutes”, for children of 9 to 12 years, where I use all of my instruments.
A composer visits the classroom!
This is a project where I visit a school class, and create music together with them, that I then record with my portable studio equipment. The pupils take part in the recording work. The project is very flexible, and can be adapted to different age groups, themes and circumstances. Below, you can listen to some samples of such projects that I’ve done.
