BTEC in Music Practice : Extended Diploma at NESCOT
This course is aimed at learners with an interest in developing their musical skills across the disciplines of performance, composition and theory. Applicants should be either an instrumentalist or a vocalist with a basic level of performance skills.
Through both solo and ensemble performance opportunities, learners will develop into balanced musicians with an ability to function in numerous musical roles. The course is stylistically neutral, with learners studying, exploring and integrating ideas from a wide range of musical traditions, genres and ideals. Thus it is vital that they are open to experimentation beyond their preferred genre.
