Music

Medborgarskolan

Maria Folkesson worked for four years with us as a classic piano teacher.

She is extremely gifted and was appreciated by all her pupils.

We wish her the best of luck for the future

 - and recommend her to any future employer.

Ellen Sonnenstein


As you all already know, our pianist Maria Folkesson is a real pearl.

Without her, the project would not been possible.

With patience and enthusiasm she has practiced with all of us and adjusted to the students in all situations. She has recorded songs we have been singing, listened to tapes of old recordings and made her own arrangements. 

Thank you, Maria!

To whom it may concern

During the last two years before Maria Folkesson's departure for the United States of America she served as my piano teacher, but we also developed a friendship. The sessions when we played the piano together were a very important element of my life during these years, when I had a busy life taking care of kids and working as a doctor at the general hospital in Uppsala. 

Maria has a genuine interest in music in general and piano in particular, but she also has the ability to pass this interest on the others since she is a great source of inspiration. Maria is an excellent pedagogue and is keen on that every tone is performed with precision. Having Maria as my piano teacher made me learn more about piano and music then I had ever dreamt of.

In addition to her skills as a piano teacher, Maria is also a person filled with "emotional intelligence".

This explains why she easily gets contact with other people and why she is so loved by people around her.

Maria's qualities in combination with her will to work hard makes her perfect for almost any job and excellent for jobs dealing with music and/or piano.
