Excerpt from the article :

"The best teachers are not always those who are the best musicians, but those who have a willingness and ability to communicate and pass on an energy to the children that you can't train for." That's 20-year-old Andreas Horsfeldt Jensen's take on one of the things that describe a firebrand.

Andreas Horsfeldt Jensen and other young people from the association MusikCamp have been behind the initiative Music Camp in Løgstrup for the past five years, which is a two-day summer camp for 40-50 children in 4th-7th grade who have no experience of playing music. The concept has since spread to Hurup Thy, and this year the first music camp was held in Viborg during the summer holidays.
