Access To Music Norwich
Access to Music Norwich is the place for anyone interested in music courses in Norwich, Great Yarmouth and Norfolk/Suffolk. The centre offers courses in Music Performance, Music Technology and Music Business as well as Level 4 courses in Artist Development.
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 Norwich runs from a dedicated site at Epic on Magdalen Street, which includes recording studios, a performance area, rehearsal rooms and technology suites.
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 (Ria Ritchie, members of The Kabeedies and the owners of Takeover Entertainment - Tinchy Stryder, Wiley etc.).
Access to Music Norwich also 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, Norwich is a great place to study music. It has a lively music and cultural scene and there are 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.

Yes, Access to Music is off, once more, to the extraordinary Latitude Festival in deepest Suffolk, and although we're packing the weliies, we're hoping we won't have to use them, despite the forecast for a heavy downpour every now and then!
'Not just a music festival' is how Latitude has been described since the very start and across its 17 stages this year you’ll find not only a top drawer music line-up, which includes Damon Albarn and The Black Keys, but theatre, literature, film, and a comedy bill to rival the Edinburgh Fringe.
You'll also find Access to Music artists performing their thing on a stage in the Inbetweeners area from Friday 18th to Sunday 20th July. This space allows teenagers to let their imagination run wild using state of the art equipment to produce their own work, get real hands-on experience of the media and music industry and a chance to work alongside industry pros in a range of interactive and industry savvy workshops.
