SONGWRITING CAMP

A week long immersive experience

in one of the main musical centers of Europe

Wisseloord Studios

Built in 1978, Wisseloord has a rich, celebrated history in the music business, and it now houses the advanced technology and aesthetic that will take it into the future. Located 20 minutes from Amsterdam in the heart of Europe between France, Scandinavia or Germany, Wisseloord is a facility where you can find all the best recording technologies of our time. But more than this, it is the place where countless artists like Sting, The Rolling Stones, Chris Brown, Afrojack, Michael Jackson, Firebeatz, Snoop Dog, 50 cent, KRS-One, and many many more have been creating music…

The House of Music 

Since 2018, Wisseloord has not only been a recording studio, but, more than anything else, it is a home for talented musicians, a creative hub for bands, writers, composers and artists. Upon the creation of the House Of Music (a partnership between Wisseloord and BMG), it now offers a roster of selected international talents the opportunity to develop their craft, collaborate with other artists, join some writing sessions, produce their records, publish their music, market and release their tracks all while guided by an international team of experienced professionals. 

 
 

During this “real world” creative experience you will engage with industry professionals, artists and peers in a songwriting camp hosted by the Wisseloord House of Music in The Netherlands in collaboration with BMG.

You will have the opportunity to work in one of the best studios of western Europe, writing, producing, and collaborating with established creatives in the Dutch music industry, an experience that ends with a final showcase where you will perform in front of industry professionals. 

The House Of Music team will take care of inviting artists, other creatives and labels who are interested in working with the Berklee students and provide briefs from the industry.

The best tracks, selected by the Creative Director of the House of Music and the A&R’s of BMG will get the opportunity to get published by Wisseloord Publishing / BMG.
