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.

In the beginner course, vocal level 1, you will learn basic singing techniques and voice use, as well as warm-up techniques and breathing exercises. Through vocal technique exercises, you will develop your relationship with your own voice and get to know basic song knowledge.

In the advanced  course, vocal level 2, we work on cultivating your unique voice and expression. Through exercises we work to develop technique, sound, intonation, and volume. Songs and vocal exercises are used to become a better singer. In addition, we will try to improvise to accompaniment. We recommend two beginners’ courses to participate on the advance course, or that you already can basic singing techniques.

On both courses you will get an introduction to microphone technique and the use of song systems. In addition, participants will learn exercises they can use during self-practice. Some self-practice is expected between the course days.

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.

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.
