Music

HeaderBar-HASN Options

"Music is not only about knowledge, it is about love and appreciation for the arts. Music is a wonderful, high-speed dual carriageway to the human mind and innermost emotions."

Sakari Oramo (Conductor, Last night of the proms 2014)

Music GCSE will help you learn more about the music you love already and open your eyes to a world of music you didn’t know existed.

Music GCSE is an exciting and engaging course that will develop your confidence, creativity and expression through exciting performance opportunities and composition projects.

You will study a wide variety of composers, artists and musical traditions which will help you relate to many other cultures around the world and become  familiar with the ‘language’ of music.

You will discover talents you never knew you had and develop the ones you’ve already got.
You will never listen to a piece of music in the same way again!

 

How will I be assessed?

You will be assessed across three different units: performing, composing and listening to music.
60% of the GCSE is coursework. 40% is a listening exam. 

 

How will GCSE music help me in the future?

A musical qualification is also recognised as a valuable asset in today’s job market applicable to many career options particularly in, education, media, marketing, and other creative industries. Employers also understand that working as a part of a musical ensemble requires commitment, dedication and excellent teamwork skills.

"Music is mathematics, it is science, it is a universal language. Music is history, it is culture, it is physical education, it is geography. It is everything”. Sakari Oramo

Acceptance onto the GCSE Music Course will be by audition only.

Students will be notified of specific dates and times of auditions following submission of the options form.
All students wishing to take music will be required to audition.

Please prepare a two minute solo performance on your choice of instrument. If you do not currently play an instrument please prepare a two minute song and bring your backing track to the audition
