How does a year in Oslo with musical experience and development sound? In this class we combine individual guidance and follow-up with work in collaboration ¬– in the studio and on the scene!

In the Vocal class you get to develop yourself as a vocalist and as a musician, in collaboration with others who share the same goal. At Rønningen we offer a practical, hands-on approach to music, of which concert projects and studio hours make out a significant part. Collaboration and intersectionality are central in this class. At the same time, you can choose to receive lessons throughout the year with a teacher expert in singing in order to improve your skills.

Who is this class suitable for?

For those who love to sing, alone and along other musicians. Both for those that have plan to embark on musical professional careers, and those that simply wish to fill a year with the joy of music.

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.
