Music GCSE at Calday Grange Grammar School
The course has three components: Performing, Composing and Listening.
GCSE Music pupils must be prepared to practice their instruments regularly and must have lessons on this instrument. It is anticipated that they will involve them fully in the school's extra-curricular activities.
The pupils are required to perform a solo, an ensemble and one other piece. One of these pieces must be their own composition. In addition they must compose two compositions based on an area of study. The Performing and Composing are worth 60% of the overall marks and are assessed through the submission of coursework.
40% of the marks are awarded for Listening. The Listening examination consists of questions on 4 areas of study: traditions in Western Music (1600-1899); New Directions in Classical Music (1900-present); Popular Song and World Music.
