Lauri Hämäläinen

Lauri is teaching young violin- and viola players in Helsinki, Finland. He has been conducting four different string orchestras (and making their arrangements) since 2004.

The purpose of making new music for young students is to use music which is fun to play and easy enough for everyone to participate.

Lauri is a founding member of the Allegros String quartet, the group that has premiered also his compositions for string quartet since 2003. He is also the performer and composer of the "Instrumental Impressions of Helsinki" multimedia show.
