About Us

SoundByNature experiences combine music, well-being and love for nature with 25 years of expertise.

We are SoundByNature
For over 25 years, SoundByNature founder Sanni Orasmaa has brought sustainably creative performance training within reach. SoundBNature is an evidence-based coaching company, helping performers and professionals achieve sustainable performance success. Driven by science and guided by people, our model is tested and proven both in the community and performing arts environments.
What we do
We present individual training, workshops and curated performances by local and international experts and artists in a naturally inviting environment.
Why we do it
We feel that the current state of collective consciousness is not supporting the individual enough. We want to strengthen individual voices and soften boundaries by bringing artists and people together through different artistic forms, emphasising unique approach and nature. We believe education and music are vehicles for implementing our message to the world.
Where we do it
Our network spans globally and is ready to help you, where ever you are.  Based in Suomusjärvi, Finland, with a work space in Espoo, we are not limited to a specific location and meet events and audiences around the globe.
How our story began
Our model originates from singer, lecturer Sanni Orasmaa, MA. As a jazz singer in New York City to working with European Academic institutions and community out reach programs internationally, she found two things. That creative performance is built on a foundation of individual wellbeing. And that wellbeing is built on safe environment. The key aspects of the performance – performer, ensemble, audience, space – must move and interact in balance. Two decades later, her model continue to inspire participants in arts and community to great achievement.

Our network of experts
The diverse professionals co-operating with SoundByNature are united by a passion for better connection and more sustainable performance. We form a global network of experts from performing arts science, health, forest therapy, and psychology to organisational wellbeing.
Rooted in science
Who do you trust? Where do you find information? The pile of advice on human wellbeing and performance can be overwhelming. Our program is backed by a network of research partners who are scientists with considerable experience in their chosen field. All our services are built on a base of evidence.
Enhance the process, not perfection.
From the streets of NYC to the hills of Northern Lapland and Greenland – the story of SoundByNature spans over cultures and continents.
