'Access to Music is a great place to move onto after leaving school. If you have a passion for music or media, then you will get a unique and rewarding experience at Access to Music which will prepare you for your creative future ... Our quals have no formal academic entry requirements, are practical and are assessed through course work rather than exams. For many musicians they offer a much better alternative to GCSEs, A Levels and BTECs. And finally, they are all about popular music - there's no classical music here!'

'In the UK we’re continuing to face increasing social challenges, such as an ageing population and growing diversity within our local communities. Getting involved in music can present a wealth of opportunities – helping us to break down barriers; providing a variety of educational opportunities as well as helping us to find ways to integrate many diverse and minority groups positively into our society. Playing a musical instrument can provide a real sense of personal achievement or could allow parents to experience that unique feeling of pride – hearing and seeing their children perform. At MfA we’re passionate about helping people to find ways to understand and experience the enjoyment and benefits of playing music.'
