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

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?

Employers also understand that working as a part of a musical ensemble requires commitment, dedication and excellent teamwork skills.
