Tero Lindberg is also known for his fine arrangements. In addition to the numbers on his solo album, he has done arrangements for many TV programmes (including nine seasons of Finland's Strictly Come Dancing) and concerts, and arrangements by him have found their way into the repertoire of many Finnish big bands, symphony orchestras and smaller line-ups. Among his recent projects have been commissions from the Vantaa Pops Orchestra, the Oulu Sinfonietta, the UMO Jazz Orchestra, the Tapiola Sinfonietta, and Finnish entertainers Vesa-Matti Loiri and Juha Tapio.
Tero has been teaching the trumpet at the Turku Region Music Institute and conducting wind orchestras since autumn 2011. During the 2007/2008 academic year he taught the trumpet and led the big band at the Porvoo Music Institute, and in 2014/2015 he taught the trumpet in the Sibelius Academy Jazz Department. In addition to these regular jobs, he has given numerous private lessons, held clinics and coached many big bands in Finland.
