You are a primary school teacher – do you play your music for your students and are they very interested in Skálmöld?
The kids ask me a lot about the band, especially after we played overseas. I don´t play the music particularly for them except if they ask for it which happens once in a while.
When did you learn to play the guitar? Do you have any advice for promising guitar players?
My mom had a guitar and I started early to practise. Then I went to a music school when I was 13 years old and I could not turn back, I became completely autistic. You just need to do one thing if you want to play an instrument very well, and that is : to practise!!! … And when you´re about to stop practising, you practise even more. You can never practise too much!
