Access to Music Bristol
Access to Music Bristol is the place for anyone interested in music courses in Bristol, Bath and the South West. The centre offers courses as alternatives to GCSEs and A Levels in Music Performance, Music Technology and Music Business as well as Level 4 courses in Artist Development and Music Educator (teacher training).
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.
Access to Music Bristol runs from a commercial rehearsal and studio business which means that your place of learning is at the heart of the regional music scene - the studios have been used by famous artists such as PJ Harvey and Portishead.
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. Ariane).
Access to Music Bristol 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, Bristol 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.
