Music A level provides opportunities for students to develop a range of skills, knowledge and understanding in music, embracing creative, interpretative, historical and analytical aspects of the subject. Music is also a context for personal growth through the diversity of serious study in music, and thereby promotes academic independence and self-discipline, broadens intellectual and emotional responses, stimulates critical discrimination and heightens social and cultural awareness.
It is expected that students will be continuing one-to-one music tuition throughout the A level course, and that they will have a knowledge of Music Theory up to Grade 5 standard.
Looking Further Ahead
Recent students have progressed to study Music at a range of higher education establishments, including conservatories. The course also provides opportunities to develop strengths and interests leading to music related and other careers.
