About Voksenåsen music academies
VOKSENÅSEN music academies
MUSICAL meeting places for talent development
The Music Academies is a set of courses and talent programs for classically trained young musicians. There are programs for strings, winds, voice, chmaber music and composers.
Our philosophy is learning through creative meetings. We believe that everyone, regardless of musical level and age, have something to teach others, and can learn from others. By meeting others, in a safe, curated and creative place we are able to become better musicans – and even better human beings.
Summer Academy Voksenåsen follows the same guidelines for ethical conduct in education as Norwegian universities and colleges. For an example, please visit Norwegian Academy of Music.
Voksenåsen Summer Academy operates with a zero tolerance against any kind of unwanted sexual attention or harassment. If you yourself experience, or if you are witness to, unwanted sexual attention or harassment, we want you to contact the on-duty staff immediately.
Voksenåsen is a hotel with a license to serve alcohol. As such, we follow the Norwegian national regulations on how to serve alcohol. We do not serve or allow students under the age of 18 to drink alcohol on any occasion. Regardless of age, we will not serve persons clearly under the influence of alcohol. Teachers and coordinators at the Summer Academy are encouraged to be good role models.
