Our tuition

The cultural school offers both group tuition and individual tuition. Group tuition lasts for a minimum of 30 minutes each week, whereas individual tuition lasts for a minimum of 25 minutes each week. The cultural school sees many positive effects by working in a group, and the students are easily inspired by each other.

As a student, you influence how the tuition will take place and what it will contain. You will also have the opportunity to attend a concert, performance, show or exhibition at least once a year. The tuition takes place mainly in your spare time, after regular school hours, and the language used in the tuition is Norwegian.

The cultural school mainly follows the elementary school's school year calendar, with the same days off and holidays. But there are some exceptions, and the cultural school has its own calendar.

Our teachers

We have teachers with extensive artistic experience and high education, who deliver tuition that is adapted to the individual student's interest and level. Read more about the teachers (in Norwegian).
