Music is becoming a popular option at GCSE. The Department follows the Edexcel course that develops students' performing, composing and listening skills in a flexible and creative way. Students work both in groups and individually on their instrument or voice. They learn to perfect performances from a variety of styles over the duration of the course and will have the opportunity to perform at informal and formal concerts throughout the course. Students also compose pieces using Music Technology and their own instruments. Students will also prepare for a listening exam by studying a variety of western and non-western musical styles. This is an exciting and fast paced course that prepares the students for A Level Music or Music Technology.
The course weighting is as follows:
Composition (2 controlled assessments) 30%.
Performance (1 solo and 1 ensemble) 30%
Listening paper 40%
