ONE OF THE MOST ACCLAIMED TALENT DEVELOPMENT CENTER OF EUROPE OPENING ITS DOORS IN PARIS !!!
Wisseloord built in 1978 is one of the most recognized studio and music centers of Europe. We are now teaming up with LA PLACE and the studios ARTISTIC PALACE in Paris as well as with numerous French music industry partners in order to help talents develop their projects on an international scope.
Artists from all around the globe going from The Rolling Stones to Chris Brown, passing by 50 Cents or Sting (click here to see the artists working in our studios) have been trusting our expertise for their recordings, mixes and productions as well as for the development of some of their projects. The Wisseloord Academy follows this trademark of quality as we strive to give all our participants the best guidance possible for the growth of their talent in the heart of the European music industry.
Our core team as well as all the producers, songwriters, industry professionals working in our Academy are sharing their expertise and guiding their peers in a very unique way, where the creativity of the participants is at the center of the program. More than a school delivering diplomas that have only very little sense in the artistic world, we focus our activities in sharing our knowhow and network to the talents working with us in order to help them develop their creative projects towards concrete career opportunities.
Each year, we gladly welcome creative and passionate talents from all around the world (more than 20 countries) in a unique hub where the top of the European music industry shares its knowledge and knowhow to a select amount of participants that we integrate to our “family”. The students that follow our courses on Campus in The Netherlands or in Paris (3h30 by train) are welcome to join classes, masterclasses, events, etc… in both countries as they enter an international hub beyond a school.
More than an educational center, the Wisseloord Academy is the only place where the talents (for us, there is no students…but talents who are working on their development!) get the chance to learn and get inspired by being directly in contact with some of the most successful composers, songwriters, producers, A&R’s, managers, etc of Europe and beyond.
The Classes and Modules are constantly developed by the pedagogic and creative team of producers, songwriters and industry professionals connected to the international hub.
The heart of our Academy is built on the synergy between the participants that we select carefully during our intakes and the team of professionals from the field who have track records covering one of the most amazing scope of genres and industry network. We chose to build our curriculum in a very practical way, close to the participant’s projects which makes of Wisseloord an unrivaled 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 Europe and participate in exchanges or camps between France, The Netherlands and more countries where our hub is proactive.
