Instructions for the pupils
The custodian's speech
"Nice to you see you. I don't know if you know this but we're very lucky also to have a Swedish composer here at the museum. Actually, he also lives here in town. His name is Erik Sandberg. If you go to him and talk to him, you can actually hear that he's Swedish. But his Danish is pretty good. I've invited him home for dinner tonight so I'd like you to find out some things about him. I'm so terribly busy. Our world is turned upside down today because it's the manager's birthday so everything must be in its place and look good. But it would be great if you could read something about Erik Sandberg. Just click on his portrait here at the museum. Also remember to read about the different composers. Just click on the music stand with all the notes.
Don't forget to visit Erik Sandberg and listen to him talking about his life. It's always fun. When I invited him for dinner he told me that the TMG studio has a quiz about him for the time being. So this is an obvious opportunity to earn some money. Remember to do so. Well, I must get on with my work. Take care until we meet again. Bye!
