WHAT CAN I OFFER TO YOU
Playing classical violin + electric violin
WORKING IN ORCHESTRAS
To play in an orchestra is my passion and a big part of my life, since I started to do it at the age of 6. I could not even read the music in the beginning, but one day I ran home shouting: ”Mother, mother, I can read the notes!”. I have worked as a freelance orchestra violinist since my graduation 2003. I am mainly playing in Denmark.
At the moment, I am working for the new concept with my colleague, cellist Tanja Hesse. We have been members of (first called))Vedbæk Church Chamber ensemble, now called Rudersdal BarokEnsemble since 2006. Before I came to Denmark, I played many years in a piano trio, Trio Tremolo, in Finland.
Since I came to Denmark, I have been playing in many different ensembles. To mention some: Tolkien Ensemble, Vedbæk Church Chamber Ensemble, Copenhagen Stravinsky Ensemble, Duo Roth-Penttinen, Trio Gimelia and later on with lots of school concerts with Summer Quartet.
From January 2012 I had a job as a violin teacher and a string orchestra conductor in a Ballerup Music School, in Ballerup Denmark. Later on I dedicated my life to performing again. But during last 1 year, I have been returning to teaching again. At the moment I am receiving more and more students, and trying to customize my life between teaching, freelancing and parenting.
I started and learned to play violin with a SUZUKI-method the first 4 years. In my own teaching, I use my experiences from Suzuki school and the methods I learned during my pedagogical studies at The Helsinki Conservatory of music and methods I have been studying while teaching in Ballerup Music School.
My ‘method’ is a mixture of Suzuki, Color Strings, Paul Rolland school, Helsinki Conservatory/Olga Parhomenko, The Royal Danish Music Conservatory/Tim Frederiksen, and ”Katariina” -School. I am very interested in conducting. I was studying it two years at the Helsinki Conservatory and have taken few courses of conducting since. Also hoping to one day continue the studies.
