Music provides students with the opportunity to develop all-round musical skills and understanding in a way that suits them best, and to give a solid foundation for ‘A’ and ‘AS’ level or for a music-related career. Students learn by developing their own practical instrumental/singing skills through solo and group performance and explore ideas to enable individual music composition. This course is suited to those who are interested in a career in the music industry, have experience of performing on an instrument or singing and have some understanding of musical notation. Students should be prepared to undertake a wide range of activities, including practical and group work. Students are also expected to attend individual music lessons on their chosen instrument.
