Arranging

I´ve arranged for several bands and artists including The Danish Radio Big Band, Lisanne Lyons, Peter Asplund, Rigmor Gustafsson, Vivian Buczek, Fredrik Kronkvist, Monday Night Big Band and Musica Vitae.

I´ve also worked with a lot of amateur bands and music schools, arrangements ranging from "The Ark" medley for clarinet quintet to Alice Tegnérs childrens songs for bigband.

I write in all styles and degrees of difficulty so don´t hesitate to contact me if you want a tailormade arrangement for your band.

All music is written in Finale and can be delivered as PDF files for easy distribution to musicians.

Composing

In 2001 and 2007 I won the composing competition "Jazzverk" with my originals "Out Of Level" and "39,9" I had the pleasure of having "Out Of Level" performed by the genius tromboneplayer John Fedchock on a USA tour with XL Big Band.

I teach composing and arranging at the composition department at Malmö Musikhögskola (Malmö College Of Music)

Performing

I enjoy playing as much as I enjoy arranging and composing. I play the alto and soprano saxophone and clarinet. Actually I started my career on the clarinet, aiming for an education on classical clarinet.

I´ve performed with a lot of bigbands, Tivoli Big Band (DK) , Monday Night Big Band (SE), Tolvan Big Band (SE) and Ib Glindeman (DK).

I also play in small groups whenever I get the chance, I´ve recently recorded a cd with the sextet of the danish trombone player Peter Jensen.

My main influences are Coltrane, Cannonball, Dexter Gordon and Jackie McLean.
