We are proud to announce that we are now operating from a brand-new, purpose-built training centre on Heath Mill Lane, Digbeth. Situated in the heart of Birmingham’s arts and media quarter, it’s just around the corner from the Custard Factory and only 10-15 minutes walk from the Bull Ring.

Students enrolling on courses and apprenticeships for September 2011 will enjoy the latest recording studios, rehearsal rooms, technology suites, multi-purpose teaching areas and a live performance space.

Formerly based at Old Snow Hill, Access to Music Birmingham has provided quality music education and training for 13 years and currently has around 300 students per year. During this time the company has developed strong links with the regional creative industries including music venues, Kerrang! Radio, Punch Records, Creative Futures, Fused Magazine and many more.

We are currently enrolling for our Music Industry Apprenticeship for those wanting to set up their own business and the new Foundation Diploma Music: Level 1 course will also be starting in September.



Music Apprenticeship

  • Level 3 (two years).
  • For 16-24s.
  • APPLY NOW as you must enrol & start before the end of July

This is a two-year training programme for anyone looking to get into the music industry.

The focus of the apprenticeship is on developing your professional career in clear areas of operation to include event management and production, music production and marketing and promotion.

You will be mentored in this process by industry professionals and you will gain work experience and paid-for work opportunities.

You will use the excellent facilities at the centre and will have opportunities for work with local, regional and national partners.

You also benefit from business skills training which will enable you to set up a business or become self-employed.
