A Level Music
A-level Music is a mix of creative, practical, academic and analytical skills. It is suitable for those students who wish to extend the skills acquired at GCSE or for musicians who have achieved grade 5 ABRSM (or equivalent) on their chosen instrument. The Music team will usually want to hold a separate interview with interested students.
You will compose, listen to and analyse a wide variety of music from 1600 to the present day. There is a good range of choice to suit the strengths of different candidates, but all candidates will need to be dedicated musicians as performance contributes as a significant part of the course.
There will be opportunities for A-level students to attend events and benefit from the expertise of visiting professional musicians. This course will enable you to improve your music performance skills by working closely with professional musicians and attending numerous workshops.
