In the lead: Instructor Alexander Rybak together with course attendee Ingrid Fuchen Røyne (13) from Fagernes. The young girl from Valdres doesn’t hide the fact that it`s fun having the well-known violinist and artist as an instructor. Rybak himself thinks it`s great being an inspiration to the next generation of strings and lets himself get inspired by their commitment and willingness to learn
Great study days in Leira
Alexander Rybak is instructor and inspiration to over 40 young strings at Valdres Summer symphony.
Ingrid Fuchen Røyne thinks it`s a fairytale to have Alexander Rybak as an instructor during Valdres Summer symphony.
The 13 year old from Fagernes, who is the only person from Valdres in Rybak`s class isn`t the only one who thinks this. Together with over 40 other young strings, she pays attention and with a firm grip on violin and bow and listens for most of them to the well-known violinist and artist while he is instructing.
