Electronic music

Our electronic music course gives you an introduction to sound design, the process of song-building, and how to compose a melody within the electronic genre.


The goal of the course is to find your personal expression, share tips and experiences and finish a song by the end of the course.

Each participant must bring their own PC with software to arrange and produce music. Large parts of the course will be arranged according to the level of the participants.

All AKKS courses focus on mastery and fun, 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. To see when the next gitar course will start and to sign up for the course please visit our Norwegian page.

Music activity for everyone

AKKS Bergen does not want economics to stand in the way of participation at our courses. We therefore have a limited number of places that are free for those under 18 and where the family has limited finances. To use this offer, you select this at the courseregistration form. If you have the Activity Card from Bergen kommune, this can also be used with us. If you have any questions, please contact us at kontoret@bergen.akks.no. This is supported by BUFDIR.
