Why study Music?

A music qualification is highly regarded in many occupational areas. Apart from leading to specialist careers in music and the arts, this qualification can highlight other attributes: the capability to work independently and as part of a group and the ability to show initiative as well as developing practical and academic skills. The Edexcel syllabus is popular because of its variety, it covers all the key musical skills and involves a wide range of musical styles from classical to pop, rock to opera and jazz to world music. The course is suited to anyone who has a keen interest in creating and listening to different styles of music and who wishes to broaden their experience and deepen their understanding of both live and recorded music.

More information about Music can be found in the subject film below or in our Sixth Form Prospectus (on our website).
