Music A Level at Carre's Grammar School

Course description

A Level Music is essential for those who wish to study Music further at University, Conservatoire, or on other Higher Education Courses. It is equally useful for non-specialists who want to take a challenging and interesting A Level course. It is a highly regarded A Level as employers recognise the many disciplines, the creativity and the talents that this qualification represents. Qualifications in Music can lead to a variety of careers that do not just include teaching and performing. Students who gain qualifications in Music can go on to work in sound recording and technology, the media, composing, law, finance, events management, the armed forces and many more.

Entry requirements

The minimum entry requirements for academic level 3 study apply. You should have Grade B or above at GCSE Music or at least a Merit at Level 2 BTEC Music. It is essential that those wishing to take the A Level Music course should be committed to learning a musical instrument. You should be able to play a musical instrument or sing at Grade 5 Level (although the actual Grade 5 qualification is not required). A good understanding of music theory and being able to read music notation is vital. If you have not taken GCSE Music or BTEC Music but have Grade 5 (Practical or Theory) then you may be considered for this course.
