Working individually but also in groups, students of music will need to achieve mastery in a wide range of areas: composition, rehearsal, music technology, musical analysis and performance. Successful students have gone on to specialist music colleges as well as to mainstream universities and directly into the music industry.
Entry requirements: At least a Grade 6 in GCSE Music with Grade 5+ at an instrument or voice. Grade 4+ theory skills should be evident.

A Level Music will appeal to students who are:
- interested in extending their appreciation of music;
- musically creative, dedicated and ambitious;
- love performing and good at communicating;
- can work on their own but are also happy to work collaboratively with others.
