Education

It is failure that guides evolution; perfection offers no incentive for improvement. (Colson Whitehead)

I've been teaching guitar since 2001. After my music informatics studies, I've also given workshops on live coding, sound synthesis and creative coding. I enjoy making lessons where the students have fun, learn something new, but the most important is to get motivated to keep learning on their own. I've been teaching SuperCollider for over 5 years now and have good experience with it. Lately I've been moved to try more SonicPi since it is very powerful and simple and enables very young people to start combining programming and music. I am happy to receive comments and inquiries about my skills and open for giving workshops on my topics of interest. Feel free to contact me if you want me to hold a talk or a workshop at your institution.
