At the Global Songwriters Program you will be working with real leads from the global music industry, have the opportunity to show your work to music business representatives and be given personal feedback and possible pitching opportunities. It will provide you with invaluable tools to take your professional life as a songwriter and music creator to the next level.

With unlimited access to a shared music studio, you get time for creation and creativity for yourself or together with some of all the other hitmakers in the house.

As an international student you will be working primarily with the international team but also alongside our students at Musikmakarna, Dreamhill Music and Songwriting for an International Market. You’ll be able to interact with them on a daily basis and you will also be working with them on a few select projects within this course.

Upon completion of your studies you will be awarded a Graduation Diploma from the school.
