As well as being violinist of the Danish String Quartet, Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen is also a member of the folk trio Dreamers’ Circus. In an aim to pass on the traditions of Nordic folk music to the next generation of musicians, the trio has devised a resource called Handed On – a project comprising original folk music in the form of sheet music and YouTube videos. If you’re interested in incorporating more (or any) Nordic folk music in your lessons, listen on to what Rune has to say; he spoke about the role of folk music in his own education, the parallels between Handed On and the Suzuki Method, as well as having more variety of repertoire in lessons.
