Cecilia Wallerstedt has a background as a teacher in music and mathematics in upper-secondary school. She has a Ph.D. in Arts Education from the Academy of Music and Drama, University of Gothenburg. In parallel to her Ph.D. education she worked in a cross-faculty (Humanities, Arts, and Education) research project on young children's learning in the arts in pre- and primary school.
