Work creatively along with other ambitious students – on scene and in the studio. You get to develop as a musician by working individually and in a team in live concerts and studio projects.

In our Band class, musicians come together to give form to sensational experiences. Here you can live out your musical dream and ambitions while at the same time learn to hone your skills with the help your classmates.

We offer a practical, hands-on approach to music, of which concert projects and studio hours make out a significant part. But there is also a theoretical side. 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?
This class is for those who are not new beginners and love music, for those who can work individually just as good as in teams. It is aimed for those who have some degree of ambition about what they want to achieve here.

What is expected from you:

This class requires a certain level of instrumental and musical ability, and we therefore ask you to send us a demo of yourself. It can be an audio tape or a live recording. You will receive more information about this in the admission process.

Duration: 8 - 12 dager

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.


Content 300 hours of Norwegian Language
Introduction to Norwegian Culture, history and way of life
