Welcome to my website! It is dedicated to my two main interests — creating music and teaching.
I'm a composer, songwriter, singer and pianist. I released a piano album 'Spaces Around Times' in 2019. Currently I'm working on my cinematic pop solo project Laaksonen with an album 'Shadows are Light' due to release in 2022. I also write music for films and choirs as well as pop artists. You can read more about my artistry on my music page.
As a teacher and pedagogue I work mainly with singing voice and singing on all levels but also coach songwriters and pianists as well as speakers. I graduated as Master of Music from the Sibelius Academy in Helsinki. I was also a pioneer of Complete Vocal Technique in Finland being one of the first teachers there. Since, I've moved on to broaden my expertise by including many more tools inspired by further education on courses and at conferences.
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.
