“Lina was a wonderful vocal teacher. Especially because she challenged me in what I thought was impossible and supported me daring to go my own way. Remember the song lessons as much fun, we sang everything from jazz standards, soul, brazilian to more modern stuff. Lina was always present and seemed to like singing together so we did that a lot. We took every other solo song and improvised together freely with and without the piano (which Lina knows how to play).
A superb educator who has a special sense of what the student needs to develop.” – Sofia Jernberg
“Lina is an extremely attentive teacher who sees the student where she/he is at the moment and inspires to development and deepening based on the student’s specific needs and wishes.” – Emily McEwan Fornhammar
