GCSE Music (8271)

GCSE Music helps students to develop subject knowledge, understanding and skills, through listening to a variety of music, playing music and creating their own music.

The specification places a strong weighting on practical aspects of music (70 per cent), with choices catering for a wide range of interests and abilities. This four-unit GCSE assesses students' skills in listening and appraising, composing and performing music.

GCSE Music offers a solid foundation for progression to other music studies, including A-level Music, and often to a music-related career.  Our course provides the opportunity for students to develop valuable transferable skills such as self-confidence, concentration, creativity, evaluation and team work.
