Music AS/A2 at Notley High School and Braintree sixth form

Course description

This course extends students GCSE skills of Performing, Composing and Listening.  Students are encouraged to study a wide range of music from folk, jazz, popular and classical traditions of Western and non-Western origin. Throughout the course students will develop skills in using relevant Music Technology.

There will be opportunities to attend concerts and workshops throughout the course.  This will give further insight, depth of understanding and appreciation of the music studied.

The difference between the AS and A2 examinations is that there is less content in the AS qualification.  The expected standard is the same as that for the A2 qualification.

Entry requirements

Grade B in GCSE music is normally required.  It is expected that students will have instrumental or vocal achievement at Grade 5 or higher.
