We are now offering the opportunity to join a 6 week, specialist-led course at our MusicSPACE, focused on trying new things and learning musical skills.

Access Groups are a 6-week long course focusing on different areas of music making, based at our offices on Harewood Road, EH16 4NT.
Scheduled at intervals throughout the academic year, these free-to-attend groups of four to six people will get a chance to try out different instruments, have a go at songwriting and explore Figurenotes notation.

Check the link below for more information and to register your interest.
