At the AKKS vocal course we work together so you become more confident in your songvoice.

You will learn to trust your voice more both by singing in a group and alone in front of the other participants. You get a tutorial in microphone techniques and how to use a PA-system.

At the beginner’s course, Vocal 1, you learn basic techniques, as well as warmup and breathing exercises. At the advanced course, Vocal 2, you work on cultivating your unique voice and expression, as well as improvising to an accompaniment.

Our courses are tailored to the skills of the participants. The courses are originally in Norwegian but can be adapted to accommodate the English speaking students.

All our courses focus on the joy of playing music, as well as mastering the instrument on every step of the way. The courses are in small groups consisting of 3 to 5 participants.
