Access To Music Birmingham
Access to Music Birmingham is the place for anyone interested in music courses in Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Walsall, Coventry and the West Midlands. The centre offers courses in Music Performance, Vocal Artist, Music Technology, Artist Development, Music Business, Skills Through Music and Creative Media.
Learning with Access to Music is an exciting and unique experience which is refreshingly different to being in a big school or college. We are 100% dedicated to music and we work with people who are equally passionate about music.
Our staff are all experienced musicians and they get to know who you are and what you want to be. We have a proven track record of students going on to university and into the industry (e.g. EZ Rollers and Lady Leshuur).
Access to Music Birmingham benefits from being part of the UK’s leading popular music college which has pioneered popular music education in this country for 20 years. This means your education and training is quality-assured by our national team. Access to Music designs is own music qualifications in partnership with Rockschool so our courses are the most up-to-date and relevant for 16-18s looking to get into the music industry.
Finally, Birmingham is a great place to study music with a really vibrant music culture and we offer plenty of opportunities to get out and perform or work at venues and festivals. You'll also benefit from national industry opportunities such working at music festivals and showcases for record labels.
