We offer group courses (3-5 participants) in DJ, electronic music, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, drums, electric piano and vocals. We also organise band courses and different workshops throughout the year. Our courses are lead by professional musicians from the Bergen music scene.

On our courses, there is a focus on playing, and the teaching takes place in a safe environment in groups of three to five participants. Our courses are largely tailored to the skills of the participants. The courses are originally in Norwegian but can be adapted to accommodate the English speaking students.

Our regular courses start in February, April, September and November, and are held at the USF Verftet and Det Akademiske Kvarter in the centre of Bergen. The course period is 5 weeks, with each session lasting 2 hours. In addition to our regular courses, each semester we set up various types of courses and workshops, with topics such as music production, songwriting and concert production.

All of AKKS Bergen’s courses with the exception of GAIN and LOUD is open to all sexes from the age of 14 and up.
We have no upper age limit but will prioritize those between 14-26 years when there is high demand.
