After a short maternity leave I start teaching again in one of my musical homes, the Folk Music Department of the Sibelius Academy. For a few years, I have been working as a ”Head of Fiddle”, sort of, and this year I have nine professional students. Autumn brings also a new challenge, as I start playing lead violin in the Sibelius Academy Folk Big Band. For students, the band is part of school, but level is professional and the concerts are good fun, so it is a great job for us as teachers.
