I am one of those teachers who swore at an early age that they would never be a teacher. My father was a much loved language teacher both in secondary education and in teacher trainings in Denmark, and I was surely not going to follow in his footsteps. But as it happens I was very happy to help people who wanted to learn...and so I naturally became a helper with people's learnng process. I came to a point around my 20th birthday where I became clear about what I wanted to do with my life. 1. I wanted to "learn how to learn", 2. I wanted to find a vocation where I could "work for the love of it" 3. I wanted to dedicate myself to a task that would require of me to develop self-discipline in my work. I have been dedicated to all three points ever since deciding to set out on a path of composition.
