The program offers practically targeted teaching in an industry-wide learning environment. Divided into eight different themes, the focus is on record companies, music publishing, artist management, entrepreneurship, music industry contract law and agreements, promotion, booking, planning small to large scale tours and the creation of bespoke events.

During your study time, we will focus on topics that include:

Students will also set up and run their own independent record labels, with guidance from industry professionals throughout the theme "Applied Working Practice" which runs for the entire program. This element serves to underpin the theoretical teaching of the core themes.

The course, through practical approach and understanding of the interaction between the various branches in the music industry, places special emphasis on developing skills that will shape you into the music industry practitioner of tomorrow.

During the course, students will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience at both by:Larm and Bergenfest.

Undervisningsopplegg

Kontakt med bransje og næringsliv har alltid vært en viktig forutsetning både for å sikre at studentene får en så praktisk relatert undervisning som mulig, men også for å sikre at utdanningen til enhver tid er oppdatert etter bransjens behov.

Gjennom utdanningen vil du bidra i driften av et studentdrevet plateselskap, utføre oppdrag for kunder og være tett på moderne musikkbransje gjennom både timelærere og gjester, oppdragsgivere og bedriftsbesøk. Denne nærheten til bransjen vil gjøre det enklere for studentene å knytte kontakter og bygge nettverk i arbeidslivet.

Undervisningsformen varieres mellom prosjekter, veiledning, forelesninger, presentasjoner, workshops, m.m.
