Summer School

Aspiring professionals

Our guitar festival is a great place to learn and have fun. You can take guitar classes and enjoy various activities. Festival-goers get free access to all concerts, and we provide transportation. You recommend that you stay at the beautiful "Åsane Folkehøyskole" (read more and order under accommodation) - we'll take care of your meals, and you might dine with the musicians. It's a small and friendly festival, and that makes it special! If you're attending both the festival and competition, we'll make sure you get to the right place at the right time.
