Music and Life during Covid19

Rami Yacoub, 3 Grammy nominated - skilled Swedish music creator

Most of us around the world of music are experiencing really different and a bit scary times these months, actually most of the year 2020. Covid19 does not seem to let us go. It is easy to loose energy and feel life as hopeless. BUT - Don´t give up! This too shall pass...Though life will never be the same again. We learn every day now how wounderable we are on this planet, together. Post-Covid we´ll come out as more caring, loving, appreciating and responsible human beeings. I hope. And - there are still many things to be happy and humble for! There are moments of gold, in spite of everything. We just have to keep up and be open! Comfort each other, carry each others sorrows and worries, be there....and get a good laugh together as well! 

 

At Musikmakarna - the Songwriters Academy of Sweden - we still create new songs, every day. They will be ready the day they are needed. Still we can meet with the music business out there, on-line but visible and alive! So, we keep the school open, with strict rules and responsibility for the Covid-restrictions. All student working studios are open 24/7. No external visitors this fall - apart from the NEIKED collective, who came up north and spent time in quarantine living in a cabin in the High Coast area, hiking daytime, creating music and going to the sauna by the lake during the evenings - while waiting for clearance to visit the school. They workd a full day with the students, a highlight of this quite dark November! Truly appreciated!

 

We arrange Songwriting Camps with some 100 of our students once a month, a good way of keeping up energy and learning to know each other and growing the network for the future. And we meet the music business once a week on-line, with presentations and individual meetings with our Musikmakarna students. Important and developing. The other day, we met with Rami Yacoub, who is nominated for 3 Grammys and has made an interesting journey. He gave our students lot´s of good advice. Thank you Rami ! And thank you all who we have met during this Fall semester, like Lorne Padman, Don Diablo, Benjamin Groff, Andreas Carlsson and all the Swedish business representatives from all labels, companies and managers. You mean the world to us!

 

Wonders happen - Covid cannot stop us! Our former student Carl Silvergran who is one of the songwriters behind Victor Leksell and his song "Svag" could recently celebrate beeing the first song to pass 100M streams on Spotify Sweden, still top 5 on the lists after nearly a year now! Students and former students release new, fantastic music every week. Some get cut in Sweden, or in LA, the Netherlands, Asia, England, - you name it!  And the coming up Swedish round for the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 contents of 28 songs/artists, where our former students are involved in 9 of them, including 2 performing artists. Music lives forever!

 

So- smile and live today, for tomorrow! The sun will raise over us again, and we will be stronger than ever before! 

 

Musikmakarna Fall 2020

Musikmakarna, October 2020, Örnsköldsvik - the High Coast of Sweden

Late October, Fall is colouring our little city. Musikmakarna are creating new music daily. Covid19 has changed

the planet and we cannot recieve music industry guests physically but we are meeting them every week on Zoom.

The students are allowed in school with access to their production studios 24/7, as ususal. With some restricitions.

We keep up the mood and continue to fulfill our dreams and passion!

Our talented students from previous years and coming ones are releasing new fantastic songs constantly. 
Looking forward to our start-up again end of August in the amazing creative House of Songwriters - Songwriters Academy of Sweden!

Musikmakarna in Corona-times

Unfortunately, no meetings in Corona times.....

Musikmakarna suffers from the rules due to the Covid19, as all of you out there. Many planned lecturing guests and exciting visitors, activites, songwriting camps etc has been cancelled and we cannot gather bigger groups these days. Students get their educational projects and songwriting tasks on-line. Although, we are lucky to still be able to keep the school and our facilities open for the students, which means they can work in their studios. Under strict regulations, of course. In respect of all around us and all of you, around the world, we have to stay safe together.

 

I´d like to send you hope, love and strenght in these strenuous times. Keep your energy up, your creativity flowing, let new things inspire and take time to reflect and build up yourself and your health, - if possible out in the nature. 

We´re here together, you are not alone. The day will come when we see the light.

 

We´re so much looking forward to seeing everyone again, to be able to work together, to share a hug. Soon!!!

Until then - if we can do anything to comfort and help, please get in contact!

We´re here!

 

With lot´s of love from us at Musikmakarna - Songwriters Academy of Sweden,

Ulla
