Welcome to my website! My name is Ville Laaksonen. I'm an artist, musician and pedagogue based in Helsinki, Finland. I compose, write lyrics, arrange and produce music. I work also as a singing voice expert and a vocal coach. I run a teaching and recording studio in Kallio district, Helsinki and also travel in Finland and abroad for lectures and workshops.
My main artistic interests are writing and producing meaningful and beautiful music inspired by classical, folk, pop and alternative music. In 2015 I released a solo album and I'm currently working on the second album. Meanwhile I've recorded a piano instrumental album which will be released in 2019. I also write music for films and choirs as well as pop artists. You can read more about my artistry on my artist page.
As a teacher and pedagogue I work mainly with voice and singing on all levels but also coach songwriters and pianists. I have experience as a school music teacher and a Master's degree in music education from the Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki. As a teacher I see myself as a facilitator and I'm a strong believer in student-centered learning. You can read more about available lessons and courses as well as my teaching philosophy on my teaching page.
I recorded new original piano compositions at the Finnvox studio. Album to be released in 2019.
