AS and A2 level: Music at Casterton College Rutland

Course description

This year we are offering students who have reached grade 5 in voice or instrument the chance to study for A Level but since the numbers may be small we are likely to teach it outside the normal blocking system. This is an exciting new opportunity for Stamford and Rutland learners. Why study music? This is a rewarding but demanding course for all budding musicians or for those who see music being a major part of their working lives. What will I study? Composition, and the understanding of a variety of music forms is one part and performance is the other part. How will I study? A lot of work is given to the performance side and as anyone who sings or plays an instrument knows there is a lot of practice involved. However you will also listen, interpret, compose and discuss your work and the work of others.

Entry requirements

C in English required. C in Maths preferred. At least a grade 5 in instrument or voice

Future opportunities

Progression Professional musicians have often studied music but there are many other careers that can use music such as drama, and the media and of course it can be bring immense pleasure to those that perform and those that listen.
