Jorma Valjakka

Jorma Valjakka, a teacher in Sibelius Academy and a solo oboist in the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, had an idea of the predecessor of Pitch Primer already ten years ago. After a lot of thought and a few years of development, he was joined by Vesa Norilo, a teacher of Music Technology in Sibelius Academy, to develop the software further. With the support of Sibelius Academy's kehittämiskeskus (development center for innovations, furthering of education and artistic activities), the final version of Pitch Primer for iPhone and iPod Touch could be developed.
