Teaching...

During 30 years he has developed a method of teaching brass instruments which is based on many years study of the human breathing physiology, the accoustics of the instruments and the development of "the inner ear". Many professional brass players has attended his devoted lessons.His ability to master classical trombone playing as well as contemporary music, jazz and renaissance music is of great advantage in these matters.

For many years Sven Larsson has practised the Australian didgeridoo and 25 years has passed since he performed with it for the first time. Through this experience he has gained a more thorough attitude to brass playing over all.

Besides from giving private lessions Sven Larsson has been employed for many years at Södra Latins Gymnasiums Musiklinje, at Stockholms Musikpedagogiska Institut(SMI), and The Royal College of Music.
