For more than 15 years Maria Carlsson, as every other teacher, has tried to inspire her students to create, write and learn. Sometimes as clown or witch... The "key" to inspiration, impulses and fantasy Maria found in classical music. She uses the energy in music to stimulate creativity, motivation and inner visions.
