We're happy to announce that Musikmakarna/Songwriters Academy of Sweden is ready again to welcome a small and exclusive number of international students during the spring semester starting in March 2023.


March 1 - May 24 2023


The city of Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, located at the heart of the UNESCO World Heritage site known as the High Coast.

To learn more about the High Coast visit www.hogakusten.com


As an international student you will be working primarily with the international team but also alongside our Swedish students at Musikmakarna, Dreamhill Music Academy 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.

The teaching will be custom-tailored for the international group, see subjects below. Additionally, you will have scheduled access to a professional mentor who will look after you and follow your progress during your studies.

You will be able to work 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. Our skilled and experienced staff will guide you through the course and supervise your development.

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



Each international student will be given full 24/7 access to the school and a working space in a shared classroom. Each working space will be equipped with a microphone, a midi controller and an audio interface. For reference listening you will have access to professional studio speakers. We expect you to bring your own computer, headphones and, if you want to, any own instruments or additional studio equipment.
