Matilda Mettälä, MA in Musicology, MS in Education from Lund University, is currently self-employed and runs her own business in Malmö, Sweden. She employs music as a tool for the purpose of developing people and organizations as she believes that the inner resources of human beings may be developed and enriched through the kind of learning which incorporates with the individual’s process of change by engaging the whole person and by means of aesthetics. Her work includes consultancy assignments in periods of changes and organizational developments; working at the interface of learning, development and the arts.

The constructionist view offers her a supportive frame of mind together with her artistic lens, which she acquired during her earlier professional work as a performing artist (her experiences include a radio hit in the US). As well as from teaching music for over 20 years, mainly vocal training and piano for students in all ages of 2-82.

Matilda often reflects on how people and events are interconnected, and how relations can profoundly affect and influence lives and situations. Daily interactions with people, places and practices are full of opportunities that inspire her. In her practices she tries to search and explore various ways to work with people including empathy, respect, and ethics. She is interested in all kinds of stories, and how we share them with others and ourselves, as well as how we build our knowledge in relations and dialogues. She likes working with issues related to learning, the arts, the inclusion of the whole person, and wellbeing.
