"Efter at have deltaget på Mads Pagsbergs musikfaglige kursus, var jeg fyldt med

inspiration til undervisning i musik i folkeskolen."

Henrik P. Christophersen – Musiklærer på Pilegårdsskolen, Tårnby

 

 

 

 

”I forbindelse med en temadag, havde vi besøg af Mads i vores afdeling. Til trods for at vi kun havde 3 timer sammen, så fik vi som afdeling en masse ud af det, samtidig havde vi det sjovt sammen. Jeg vil til enhver tid anbefale Mads, hvis man ønsker en lidt alternativ og sjovere tilgang til kommunikation og teambuilding”

Background

DK: Jeg er født i 1970 og vokset op i Jyllinge ved Roskilde Fjord. Mit barndomshjem var fyldt med musik og jeg husker at jeg hver aften faldt i søvn til Chopin, Bach og andre store komponister, som vi far spillede på klaveret i stuen lige oven over mit værelse. Fra jeg var ca. 11 år spillede jeg Amerikansk folkemusik med mine forældre og søstrei vores eget lille familieband. Både de Amerikanske musikrødder og den klassiske kompositionsmusik har, sammen med min musiske

dannelse på musikskolen i Jyllinge, senere på Roskilde Amtsgymnasium og til sidst på Københavns Universitet, formet min tilgang til musikken som dirigent, komponist, musikpædagog og musiker.

US : I was born in 1970 and grew up in Jyllinge by Roskilde Fjord . My childhood home was filled with music and I remember falling asleep every night in my bed while my father played Chopin, Bach and other great artists on the piano in the livingroom just above my basement room. From I was about 11 years old, I played American folkmusic with my parents and sisters in our own little family band . Both the American music roots and the classical art music, along with my musical education at the music school in Jyllinge, later in Roskilde County High School and finally at the University of Copenhagen have shaped my approach to music, as a conductor, composer, music teacher and musician.

Inside the music

DK: CD'en Almost Music af The BigBand illustrerer fint min tilgang til musik. En lang række spørgsmål til mediet, udmønter sig i en CD der henter sin inspiration i jazz, rock, kompositionsmusik, funk, korsang, hiphop mv.

 

US: The CD Almost Music by The BigBand is a good illustration of my approach to music . A series of questions to the media, translates it self into a CD which draws inspiration from jazz, rock , classical music, funk, choral singing, hip hop, etc. .
