Ólafur Torfason


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 and I'm currently working on my second album. 2014 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.
