“A sign of having witnessed something very good and engaging is when it occupies your thoughts long after it’s over. That’s how it was today at Carlforsska with Rickard Åström.”
"Your presentation should be a model for all presentations. Apart from the content, that I just loved, it was a presentation that had it all. Something for the ear, for the heart, for the brain, and it was fun. Thank you."
"Thank you for your brilliant and captivating lecture! We now carry a lot of dedication and interest in music and how it affects our health. I wish we could rewind time and relive yesterday evening. I am highly satisfied with the content you presented, it was exactly what I wanted you to discuss. We got to experience actual scientific research, which shall be present in school as education, relying on a scientific foundation and well-tried experience. Now it will be more important for us to work with our profile music, drama and movement, now that we have deepened our knowledge of how these affect us."
