The acoustic guitar is a versatile instrument frequently used in both pop, rock and folk music.

At the AKKS guitar course, you learn about different styles and techniques. At the beginner’s course, you get an introduction to the guitar as an instrument and you learn different techniques, basic chords and simple riffs. You are able to start playing simple songs early.

At the advanced course, you will learn even advanced more songs, chords and techniques. You dive into more advanced musical styles and improvisation, as well as learning fingerstyle guitar.

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.
