Singer/Songwriter and Music Production

Send application

Would you like to spend a year in Oslo during which you can dedicate yourself to producing music? In this class, you will develop yourself as a musician, in the studio just as much as on the scene.

Rønningen provides a practical, hands-on approach to music. This is possible thanks to the many concert projects and activities in the music studio. Moreover, you can choose to receive lessons throughout the year with teachers expert in singing, instrument playing or music production, in order to improve your skills.

As in all the musical classes in the school, we offer courses in rhythm training, music theory, exposition techniques, and general field knowledge, in addition to helping you with any admission exam or test that you are planning on taking in the course of the year.

Who is this class suitable for?

The class is for the ones interested in songwriting and music production, independently of them being new to the field, or already have produced music before. It is for those who desire simply to spend a year pursuing their passion or for those who want to use it as a launching platform for future plans within the field.

During the month of October, together with the Dance and Creativity class, we will travel to see some of Europe’s best cultural life. Namely, to Amsterdam and Berlin. Before travelling, we will collaborate with the other class to develop a project that we will show around during the trip. Perhaps you have already been to either of these cities? Don’t worry, this is a completely different type of trip, where we abandon the tourist attitude and focus on how these places represent unique destinations for musicians and dancers.

In fact, Amsterdam and Berlin are rich in culture life and lots of fascinating history. We will go watch many concerts and come in close contact with the music environment. Additionally, we will be staying at cool cafes and restaurants in an intriguing metropolitan atmosphere and walk the streets for some eventual vintage-shopping.

The most important thing we bring back home is in any case the community whose bonds will be closely knit during the many shared experiences that the trip has in store for us. 

Rønningen offers an alternative to the trip abroad to all its students: a study trip in Oslo! This is a tuition-free alternative for those students that do not come along in the travels abroad.

The Goal In addition to the Norwegian course you will get the opportunity to participate in various cultural activities, and study different subjects together with Norwegian students both inside and outside Rønningen.

This contributes to your integration, and makes it easy to get to know Norwegian fellow students and thus practise your Norwegian.
