    Performing, creating and understanding - key words for a music teacher

    Many of the music teachers who are active today studied at Ingesund School of Music. One of these teachers is Henrik Bengtsson, who graduated in 2016. Today, he teaches music in a primary and lower-secondary school in Trollhättan. In addition, he also works as a freelance musician, on his own as well as together with his wife, who also studied at Ingesund.

    To be able to apply a broad approach as a music teacher is important to Henrik. Teaching includes both theory and practice and Henrik likes to integrate the two.

    In 2016, Karlstad University was given the right to issue a Degree of Bachelor of Fine Arts at Ingesund School of Music. The experiences gained from that application process were then utilised in a new application for a Degree of Master of Fine Arts, which was submitted to the Swedish Higher Education Authority, UKÄ. The application has now been approved and Ingesund School of Music can issue a master’s degree. The master’s programme is estimated to start in the autumn of 2023.
