If you are interested in learning about music, there's plenty on offer for all musical tastes. Whether you want to find out about how to sing, play a musical instrument, read music or start songwriting, there are lots of opportunities around the UK to do so.

You can study music more formally at a college or university, with many throughout the UK offering a wide range of courses. However, if you prefer to learn at your own pace, you can study with a music teacher or even learn online.
