The course provides an opportunity to study the disciplines of music in an integrated way as well as cultivating the highly desirable skills needed for Higher Education and future employment including self-management, creativity, data analysis, performance, teamwork, problem-solving and communication. Students will have a choice of specialising in either performance or composition whilst reinforcing their knowledge and understanding of music through three areas of study: The Western Classical Tradition; Twentieth Century Music; and one from either Rock and Pop, Musical Theatre, or Jazz.
To support their personal instrumental studies students will be given a rich variety of public performance opportunities: Christmas Concerts; Summer Concerts; School Production; Lunchtime Concerts; Evening Recitals; the Primary Schools’ Music Tour – leading to showcase events such as Regent Centre Community Project and other local music events in the community. The course content is delivered through joint lessons involving students from both Music Performance pathways to maximise ensemble performance opportunities and to support collaborative learning. A-level students will also benefit from regular tutorials and additional Music Theory classes delivered through the Music Enrichment programme.
