Music AS/A Level at The Maelor School

Course description

The Music industry is thriving in the UK with plenty of opportunities for careers in either the performance/composing side or in production. Music at A level is well respected by universities as a creative subject with both academic rigour and important skill development. Study is based across three areas: performing, composing and appraising, with plenty of opportunities to take an active role in the extra-curricular music life of Maelor Sixth.
In addition to the musical skills developed, studying music at A level also helps you to develop your analytical skills, to make decisions and improve communication skills. It is strongly recommended that you have tuition on your main instrument.
Music is a complementary subject for a range of other subjects, often including Maths, Physics, History, French, English Literature and Art. Careers after university have enormous variety and musicians are to be found working in teaching, banking, and the computer gaming industry as well as in broadcasting and the music industry itself.

Entry requirements
