Music at Shrewsbury Sixth Form College

Course description

The music course involves performing, composing, listening and analysing in almost equal measure. You will improve your skills in performing and compose in different styles. You will also listen to and analyse a wide variety of music to develop a more informed appreciation of how and why it was written.

You will study both ‘classical’ and ‘popular’ styles of music and the course content is flexible enough for you to develop in whatever area of music you are most interested in - including music technology. Whatever your interests and background, this course will ensure that you become a more mature and ‘rounded’ musician.

Entry requirements

By the start of the course, you must be able to play an instrument or sing to a Grade 4 or 5 standard or higher
(NOTE: This does not mean you need to have taken a Grade 5 exam)

You must be able to understand standard music notation. GCSE music and Grade 5 Theory are useful, but NOT essential.
