Teaching and coaching
As a teacher he acts as an experienced colleague. He always involves young colleagues in a joint creative process, stands on stage with young professionals, and inspires his students by sharing his visions, reflections and analyses of various types of music.
Niko is one of the coaches in our autumn project in October 2021.
