Research Areas

My research interests focus on the questions of music education, particularly learning music in group instruction and primary school teachers’ and pre-service teachers’ relation to teaching and studying music. Since 2014 I have been doing PhD studies in the University of Jyväskylä.


My teaching focuses on music and music education. I am also responsible of one  teaching practice period.
