I’m 37 years old Icelandic musician and a music teacher. I have been living in Finland for eleven years. I have over 20 years of teaching experience both in Iceland and Finland.
From early childhood I learned about guitar playing from my father Torfi Ólafsson. The year 1994 my father along with his partner Tryggvi Hubner founded the Guitar School of Iceland, where I studied from the age of 11. At the age of 20 I became part of the faculty and worked there for five years.
At the Guitar school of Iceland I got valuable training and experience in teaching music and guitar playing, working side by side with some of Iceland's greatest guitar players and teachers. After graduating from Guitar school of Iceland I studied classical and jazz guitar and singing from various teachers and schools. The year 2008 I graduated with a BA degree in Psychology and Education and moved to a sunnier place, to Finland :)
I have many years of experience as a performing musician and as a songwriter. 2019 I puplished a new solo album called "Hamskipti" and I also make instrumental music for films, tv and theater under the artist name "Korkur" . 2016 I decided to establish my own music school and I decided to call it Music Adventures, because the past 20 years I have been honored and privileged to be part of my students own unique music adventures.
I am a 33-years-old Helsinki-based musician and a guitar instructor. I have a B.A. degree in "Pop and Jazz Guitar Teaching" from Helsinki University of Applied Sciences.
I also have a B.A. degree in Musicology from Helsinki University.
I have worked as a professional guitar instructor for different music schools and institutions in the big Helsinki area for 10 years time.
As a professional guitar player I have recorded and performed with several rock bands such as "Jo Below" , "Wheel" and "Tracedawn".
In the year 2019 the Finnish Prog rock band I was in "Wheel" published the album ”Moving Backwards” . . With that band I performed in different shows and festivals in Finland and around Europe.
