I am serving as a casual lecturer at the University of the Arts Helsinki since 2014. I have been teaching on bachelor, master, and doctoral level and my courses relate to teachers’ pedagogical studies, special education, adult education and research studies in music and arts education. I have contributed to the curriculum design at the Music Education Department at the Sibelius Academy by bringing forward issues of special education, disability, and older adults within pedagogical contexts. Currently I am supervising doctoral dissertations at the MuTri Doctoral School in the UniArts Helsinki.
Before entering scholarly life I worked several years as a music instrument teacher for students of all ages and with different learning disabilities at the Resonaari Music Centre. After leaving my teaching position I have continued collaboration with Resonaari through research and development projects together with Resonaari’s teachers and musicians.
