Music sheets

Prepare pieces that you want to play during Tónlek

Prepare musical pieces that you want to play at the SOLO lessons during Tónlek. Keep in mind that there will be concerts early in the week, so bring something you can play already at the concert that Tuesday.

If you play short pieces, for instance if you are a beginner or if you have been playing for just a few years, you can bring 4-5 tunes that you can play at the SOLO lessons. If you play pieces with rich content, i.e. if you play classical pieces or have played for a long time, 2–3 pieces will be enough. Remember to bring piano sheets to the chosen pieces!

Send piano sheets

When you have decided which pieces to play during the week, please scan the piano parts and send them to no later than July 15.

This gives our accompanist the chance to be prepared to play everyone’s wishes during the week.

Practice orchestral scores – you’ll find them in OneDrive!

We will share the orchestral scores in OneDrive. You will receive a link to OneDrive by email. Please note, do not spread the link, as the notes may only be used by participants within the project.


Travel together

Some of you have already asked for the opportunity to travel together with other participants. Since GDPR does not allow me to share your personal data and if you are one of those who wishes to travel together, I ask you to email me your wish and from where you want to travel.

Do you play cello or double bass? Do you travel by airplane, train and/or by bus? If it is difficult to bring your own instrument, there is an opportunity to borrow instrument from nearby schools. If you know that this will apply to you, please contact Project Manager Therese Olsson Hugosson as soon as you can so that we can make a good solution.


To bring in addition to your usual clothes:


Members of RUM are insured at TryggHansa already when they start travelling from the home to Tónlek and keep being insured until they come back home. You need to check your own insurances if you lack membership in RUM, so that you and your belongings still are being insured when staying at Tónlek.

Please make sure that your instrument also is insured during the week. If you rent an instrument from a school or a company, please also make sure that the rental conditions approve travelling with the instrument. If you have householder’s comprehensive insurance, both you, your belongings and your instrument (rented or owned) should be insured. Double check it to avoid unpleasant surprises.
