Short bio

Ville Komppa works as a lector at Uniarts Helsinki Sibelius Academy teaching music theory, analysis and history. His research focus currently lies on the use of improvisation and ensemble playing in teaching harmony, voice leading and music analysis. The interaction of music, culture and social life is important to Komppa both in personal and professional life, whether it be in the arts, teaching, audience projects or questions of equality, wellbeing or sustainability. Komppa composes, arranges, performs as a clarinetist, hosts the Tunne orkesterisi (Know your orchestra) lecture series at Helsinki Music Centre, and writes, speaks and broadcasts.

Ville Komppa has got grants for studying and working from Finnish Cultural Foundation and Pro Musica Foundation.
