Music

Why Music?

That's easy. Learning music is a meaningful and gratifying experience for students (as well as for people of all ages). The mixture of creativity, discipline, and communication that music study demands of our students helps them succeed in school, in society, and in life.

Music Education enhances learning skills, communication skills, creativity, teamwork, discipline, cultural awareness, respect for others, and self-esteem through personal accomplishment.

Research indicates a positive relationship between studying music and developing spatial skills necessary for math and science learning.

 

Research also shows that the study of music affects students positively in other areas of their lives, especially in four areas:

  1. Success in School

  2. Success in Developing Intelligence

  3. Success in Society

  4. Success in Life

GCSE Music

Our GCSE Music specification encourages an integrated approach to the three distinct disciplines of performing, composing and appraising through four interrelated areas of study.

A-Level Music

Our AS/A level Music specification offers a broad, flexible and coherent course of study which encourages learners to engage actively in the process of music study.

It provides learners with the opportunity to study music in an integrated way where the skills of performing, composing and appraising reinforce knowledge and understanding of musical elements, contexts and language.
