Music is a practical subject and gives you the power to engage with music more deeply as a performer, composer and listener.
The study of music requires self discipline, commitment and good communication skills - all are attributes that employers or universities value.
It encompasses performance, listening and analysis, composition and elements of harmony, and so broadens your music knowledge and understanding and opens up new areas of the subject which are not covered at GCSE.
A level music involves a lot of creative work (around 60%) as well as the theoretical study of music history and theory. It is a course which is highly regarded by universities for the breadth of skills which students develop.
