During the past year I’ve taken multiple private lessons with Tina Margareta Nilssen. Already on the first lesson with her I experienced this type of method and technique to be very effective, specific and easily accessible. Through these lessons I’ve gained a better understanding about, and connection with the muscles used in my playing, as well as a greater control over sound and technique. Tina possesses a knowledgeable, intuitive and holistic perspective on the body. She knows how the body plays most efficiently and at its best. She also has a warm and open-minded way of communicating.
