Wisseloord as a studio is strongly connected to all the most relevant industry actors of the country and we are proud to say that this synergy between the participants and professionals from the field makes the Academy an unrivaled learning center, but also a unique platform for career launches. Our freedom from any academic structure and format, as well as our practical approach (in our classes, we make music, and don’t spend half of the time talking about it theoretically like in many other institutions) gives us the freedom to create really exciting opportunities for our students who get the chance to write, compose and produce for and with some of the most acclaimed artists of the country.

Soon the academy will welcome a new group of students. Each potential new student first meets Malik Berrabah, Music producer, CEO of the Wisseloord group and founder of the Academy, to talk about past experiences, goals and ideas to really discuss a working plan on how the most suitable curriculum in order to help each participant to have a tailor made program, most suitable for his/her career.
