Do you want to spend a whole year playing or writing music? Learn what it takes to become a professional musician or become more confident on stage? Then Rhythmic performing at Stord FHS is for you!
Here you will have plenty of time for self-practice, so that you can develop the way YOU want. You get to participate in a band project where your genre knowledge is put to the test, as well as the opportunity to perform your music on large and small stages at Stord. Main instrument lessons are of course included with committed and skilled teachers, who are also active musicians (!!).
In addition to this, you get to attend one of the newest folk high schools in Norway, which is located in the center of Leirvik. As a music student, it's easy to be included in social gatherings, whether it's singing in the afternoon, mini-concerts or starting a songwriting club.
