Personal presentation:
I was born in 1959. I live in Norrköping, Sweden. Music has been a hobby for most of my life; I seriously started making choral arrangements in spring 2000 (and have not been able to stop since then :-). For a longer presentation, see CPDL.

My musical background:

In the municipal music school, I studied piano, recorder, and violin (somewhat). I have kept playing the piano, and taught myself to play the guitar (mostly chord playing as accompanient to song, but also some "finger play").

When I was around 25 years old, I started to take singing lessons, and did that for approximately seven years (with frequent breaks for a year or a half each). About the same time, I started to sing in a women's choir for students. I have sung in women's and mixed choirs since then (also here with some breaks), both in church choirs and secular choirs.

I was earlier a graduate student in the cross-area between databases and music and am still interested in computer-represented music.

Concerning my knowledge in arranging choral music: I am mostly an auto-didact (my formal education is short: half a semester of basic music theory at the university). I try to transform the practical knowledge I get as a choral singer to arrangements that are (hopefully!) fun to sing.
