Håvard started playing the piano at the age of 8. He started composing and improvising very young. Inspired by the tranquility and serenity of Olavskirken, a church in the middle of the forest in rural Norway, where he spent many late nights by himself rehearsing and playing with music. At the age of 17 he picked up the cello as his second instrument and followed two musical paths. The classical on the piano, and the folk/traditional on the cello. After graduating from the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, he settled in Barcelona where he did his last year, at the Escola Superior de Mùsica de Catalunya.
