One year of folk high school and music

You get to join a class of like-minded people who share your passion for music. You get to play in different band compositions and sing in vocal groups. You get an introduction to light / sound rig and design, use of recording studio and related music theory such as composition, arrangement and harmony theory.

You get training in writing lyrics and setting melody and chords to your lyrics. You get to play with other students in bands, both cover songs and self-produced songs. You get the opportunity to make music on your instrument, in our three studios with Cubase and FL Studio or on your own PC with preferred DAW.

You get the opportunity to come back to school in the summer for an extra bonus week to join The Sagtjern festival. Here you and your class play a set of your own music, contribute with rigging of light and sound and everything else that belongs to a festival, are responsible for the backstage area of ​​the artists and get to learn a lot about how to arrange and carry out a festival.

Good access to play music around the clock. "Words for the day" always gave the days a good start. I have learned a lot from lectures, seminars and life stories from the teachers - and got to know many nice people!

Ann Emilie Knapstad, 2019/2020

You get to collaborate with other lines during the year. Together with Africa - Aid / Culture, we set up a separate Christmas play where you can be a composer, rig and control sound / light or be an actor. We also have a creative performance art project with Art / Experiences, and recording a music video with Photos / Experiences. 

You live and work in a creative environment at the folk high school. There are always great opportunities for you to develop as a person and musically, both alone and with others. 

Study trips with the music line

  • London
  • Norwegian tour
  • By train through Europe

Autumn Semester - London: Good days in London with concerts, musicals and other cultural life. You get to visit relevant music institutions and famous historical music-related places. 

Spring semester - Norwegian tour: We prepare a concert production and you get to experience the tour life by traveling from place to place over a period of two weeks, rigging up and playing a concert with your own music in front of different audiences, before you rig down and travel on. 

Spring semester - Train through Europe: Trains are the best way to experience the most of wonderful Europe on the go. We decide on some big cities we focus on and live in along the way, and supplement with sights, little gems and good music experiences.

Regarding Covid-19

Due to Covid-19 and constant changes in the infection situation, it is difficult to say for sure for the coming school year. But we follow all infection control advice and travel advice given by the authorities. We plan for an almost normal school year, and so that all travel can take place as normal. But we will work out good alternative solutions if this is not possible. Destinations on study trips can be added elsewhere (including domestically) if natural disasters or other external and extraordinary circumstances occur which the school does not control, and which significantly affect the implementation of the trip. No financial compensation is normally given for this.
